The Mayor of the Borough of Broxtowe (2018/19), Councillor Derek Burnett BEM, has chosen to support two charities: SSAFA and East Midlands Ambulance during this civic year. We hope everyone will join him in raising funds for these important charities through a series of fundraising events.


The armed forces charity exist to relieve need suffering and distress to serving and armed forces veterans and their families in order to support their independence and dignity.

As the UK’s Oldest National Tri-Service Military Charity, SAFA works in partnership with other military charities and specialist organisations to ensure that support is available to those who need it. They work with serving armed forces personnel, veterans and their families to give them independence and dignity.SSAFA Logo

 East Midlands Ambulance Service

Community first responders (CFRs) are in schemes founded and run by volunteers who give up their spare time to attend appropriate emergency calls in their own community. They are dispatched by the EMAS Emergency Operations Centre.

EMAS always provides the fastest possible response to emergency calls using its conventional resources such as ambulances and fast response cars. However, for patients experiencing cardiac arrest every second counts. For every minute that passes without defibrillation a person’s chances of survival can decrease by up to 10%.

In the more rural and hard to reach areas of the East Midlands, community first responders have a much better chance of providing the immediate help needed prior to the arrival of an EMAS crew.East Midlands Ambulance Service Logo

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.

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.
