Charities

The Mayor of the Borough of Broxtowe (2016/17), Councillor Graham Harvey, has chosen to support Prostate Cancer UK during this civic year. We hope everyone will join him in raising funds for this important charity through a series of fundraising events.

Prostate Cancer UK Prostate Cancer UK

Prostate Cancer UK is the UK's largest men's health charity. They aim to help more men survive prostate cancer and enjoy a better quality of life. Prostate Cancer is the most common cancer in men and over 44,000 men are diagnosed with the disease every year - that's more than 120 men every day. Over the last ten years, Prostate Cancer UK has invested millions of pounds into research, services and awareness. They provide a range of services to men and their families from Specialist Nurses and one-to-one support to information leaflets and live chat online to make it easier for men to get in touch for advice.

Support the Mayor's charities

As well as attending the charity events listed above, you can also show your support to the Mayor's charities by organising your own event and getting your friends and colleagues to sponsor you.

Separate sponsorship forms are available to download, allowing you to decide which of the Mayor's charities you wish to support.

Make a donation

If you are unable to attend one of the Mayor's charity events, you can still make a donation the chosen charities by making your cheque payable to 'Broxtowe Borough Council - Mayor's charities' and returning it to the Civic Office, Broxtowe Borough Council, Foster Avenue, Beeston, Nottingham, NG9 1AB.

Supporting other charities

The Council realises you may choose to support different charities, which is fantastic. The Council get lots of requests to promote these individual efforts but it is difficult to promote them all.

In order to be fair to the widest range of charities, the Mayor each year chooses different charities to support and in that year of office these are the charities the council will adopt and promote.

This enables the Council to support a diverse range of charities and give us all the opportunity to maximise on the fundraising.
