Mayor of Weymouth raises over £1,127 for Christmas Fund Appeal
A range of community groups and organisations have benefitted from the Mayor’s Christmas Fund appeal, which has raised over £1,127.
Mayor of Weymouth Cllr Ann Weaving met and presented the groups with cheques at the council offices on Tuesday 13th December. They include:
Lantern Trust, The Bus Shelter, Weymouth Food Bank, Talking Newspaper, Veterans Hub, Samaritans, Salvation Army, Dorset Echo Toy Appeal, The Nest, MV Freedom, Social Inclusion Group and Soul Food.
Cllr Weaving said: “I was delighted to raise over £1,127 to support local groups and organisations to benefit from this year’s Mayor’s Christmas Fund appeal. It’s important to spread a little joy across the festive period and provide some extra support to those who need it the most in Weymouth. The fund serves to meet the most critical needs of our communities.”
Each year the appeal is launched, and organisations or individuals are encouraged to donate to the fund which is run by Weymouth Town Council and administered by Weymouth and Portland Lions Club.
