Mayor’s charities receive a share of £2,835
On 14th June Cllr Peter Tomas distributed the funds he raised during his Mayoral year which concluded in May 2018. Throughout the year he hosted several events and raised a grand total of £2,835. He supported charities which are all involved in supporting victims of cancer. Macmillan Nurses, Prostate Cancer Organisation and Crazy Hats all received £945.
Macmillan in Northamptonshire said: “We are so grateful to Peter Tomas and all involved in raising this generous donation, and it will go a long way to help us support people living with cancer. £945 could fund a Macmillan Nurse for nearly a week, helping people with the medical, emotional, practical and even financial effects of a cancer diagnosis. Macmillan’s mission is to reach absolutely everybody who hears the news they have cancer, and this money is going to get us even closer to that vision.”
