The Mayor honoured the charities at a reception today.
The Mayor of Warrington, Cllr Karen Mundry, hosted a small reception to honour the charities supported by the Mayor’s charity appeal. The total cost of money raised was over £10,000.
The reception took place in the Mayor’s Parlour at Warrington Town Hall at 11am on Tuesday 14 May.
The money raised has been split between the Mayor’s chosen charities – Warrington Disability Partnership, a voluntary organisation improving the quality of life for disabled people and their families and the Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Centre for Peace, a charity working nationally and internationally for peace and non-violent resolution of conflict.
Part of the money is going to a local charity, Harry & Co, which supports maternity bereavement services and other charities will also be awarded sums of the appeal.
The Mayor of Warrington, Cllr Karen Mundry said: “It’s an honour to host this event to present these charities with over £10,000 between them. This money will help them to support the people of Warrington and beyond, and enable the charities to further develop and carry out their services.”
Warrington Disability Partnership and the Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Centre for Peace both received £3,500.
Other beneficiaries include:
