A total of £1,330 has been raised for local causes following a successful charity night hosted by the Mayor of North East Lincolnshire.
Councillor David Hasthorpe welcomed more than 100 guests on 31 October, who enjoyed an evening of live music, fish and chips and a tombola, with prizes donated by local companies and guests.
The charity event was held all in aid of the Mayor’s chosen charities – Andy’s, Harbour Place and CatZero.
“Mayoress and I are both grateful to those who attended and put their hands deep into their pockets to raise such a great amount,” said Cllr Hasthorpe. “The monies will help to swell the Mayor’s charity account which is already looking very healthy.”
He added: “Vital funds were raised that, at the end of my year as Mayor, will be split between Andy’s Children’s Hospice, Catzero and Harbour Place – all local causes that have had their funding hit so hard during the last couple of years of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I believe we all know someone who has benefitted from these fabulous organisations and I am delighted that so many dig deep to help with my fundraising. My thanks to all who have so far got us to a total in excess of £5,000 to be given over, and I hope, much more to come.”
