Support the Mayor’s Charity Fund for 2021/22
Each year, the Mayor of Biggleswade raises funds for a chosen charity by holding events and through the generous donations from the residents of Biggleswade. At the end of the Mayoral year in May, the funds are used to support those in need residing in and around Biggleswade.
Last year’s recipient of the Mayor’s Charity Fund was Sue Ryder St John’s Hospice. The charity helps to support people through the most difficult time of their lives. The generosity of the residents of Biggleswade resulted in donations totalling £582.12, which provided 30 hours of expert care to people in Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire suffering from cancer, heart failure, lung disease and motor neurone disease.
With the unprecedented circumstances this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Mayor of Biggleswade, Madeline Russell, has been forced to cancel the annual Civic Service. This event is an opportunity to focus on the community of Biggleswade and to recognise and thank the many individuals who do so much for our town in so many ways. Consequently, until events can safely be held again, donations have added importance in these extremely challenging times.
All donations are welcome and can really help to make a difference in people’s lives. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to make a donation.
Meanwhile, the Mayors’ chosen charity will be announced at the end of May so please visit the website at this time for an update.
