Chesterfield Mayor to support Accessible Derbyshire

Each year the Mayor of Chesterfield supports one or more local charities through his or her mayoral appeal. We are delighted to announce that the incoming Mayor  and Mayoress for the coming year: Councillor Steve Brunt and Mrs Jill Mannion-Brunt have chosen to support Accessible Derbyshire.

The Chesterfield Royal Hospital Macmillan Cancer Centre appeal will also benefit from the 2015 /2016 mayoral appeal.

Accessible Derbyshire co-founder Gillian Scotford said: "We are absolutely thrilled that Steve and Jill have decided to support our charity in the coming year. Every penny raised will help to support our aims of improving life for disabled people, their families, friends and carers in the area. To have their backing really does mean such a lot and will make a huge difference to the people we support."

A series of fundraising events are already being planned throughout the year with the first two already confirmed. They are:

Wednesday, 18th May:    7.00pm:  Tantalising Tapas at Koo in Chesterfield  (£15 on booking on 01246 205804 & £5 donation on the night)

Wednesday, 15th June: 7.30pm: Calabrian Wine Tasting & buffet at Calabria in Chesterfield (£20 on booking on 01246 559944 & £5 donation                                                                                                                                                                                                                             on the night)

We would love as many people as possible to get behind the appeal and really make a difference so if you fancy a fabulous night out that will also do some good please come along and give your support.

This year's Mayoral Civic Ceremony takes place on Saturday, 15th May with a procession leaving the Town Hall at 10.40 arriving at the Crooked Spire for a service at 11.00am.

We would like to express our sincere and heartfelt thanks to Steve and Jill for their kind support and wish them every success during their forthcoming mayoral year.

Gillian and Jane
