Mayor of Broxtowe Says Thank You To Charity Fundraisers

12/05/20 - Over £3,600 has been raised for the Trent Cardiac Unit at Nottingham City Hospital thanks to Mayor of Broxtowe, Councillor Michael Brown and those who have supported him during his Mayoral year.

Michael said: “I would like to give my heartfelt thank you to the local Councillors, friends and local business who have all generously donated their time and resources to raise a hefty amount of money for the charity. The last few weeks of my year in office have been a little different due to the pandemic and I haven’t been able to get out and about to thank people in person and raise a higher amount but I hope they know how much I appreciate the amazing work they have done to help me raise this money for the Cardiac Unit.                                                                                                                                                                                                Mayor of Broxtowe Councillor Michael Brown

I’m really touched by the support I have received during my year in office. Without the help of the fundraisers, I could not have raised such a splendid sum of money. The money they raised will certainly make a difference to the services provided by the Trent Cardiac Unit.”

A variety of fundraising events took place during Michael’s year in office, including a Golf Day, tea dance, and Italian Dinner at Beauvale Priory, Moorgreen. The Mayor is now backing the Broxtowe Community Appeal which is crowdfunding for £10,000 by 24th May to donate to local community and voluntary groups who are supporting the most vulnerable during the pandemic. This will top up the £58,000 of emergency funding the Council has already donated to these groups. Anyone wishing to donate can do so at www.spacehive.com/broxtowe-community-appeal (Opens in a new window).

A new Mayor will take office at the Annual Council Meeting tomorrow(13th May) which will be held virtually. A meeting link will be available on the Council’s website prior to the meeting.
