The Mayor's charity appeal 2019/20

Due to high demand, the deadline for bulky waste collections at 3pm today has been brought forward to 1pm. Any collections booked after will now be collected on Saturday August 24 and not Monday August 19. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

As soon as the nomination for the next Mayor is known they are asked to decide which charity or charities they would like to benefit from their appeal.

This year, the Mayor, Councillor Seaton's charity appeal will raise money for Admiral Nurses.

The charity appeal 2019/20 

Admiral NursesAdmiral Nurses provide the specialist dementia support that families need when things get challenging or difficult, Admiral Nurses work alongside people with dementia, and their families: giving them one-to-one support, expert guidance and practical solutions. The unique dementia expertise and experience an Admiral Nurse brings is a lifeline–it helps families to live more positively with dementia in the present, and to face the challenges of tomorrow with more confidence and less fear.

Most Admiral Nurses work in the community for the NHS, and others work in care homes, hospitals and hospices. Admiral Nurses work with people and families affected by all types of dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia, frontotemporal dementia and dementia with Lewy bodies.

For more information or to make a donation

For more information about the Mayor's annual appeal, or to find out how you can make a donation, please get in touch with the Mayor's Office on:

Most Mayors choose charities with which they have some personal connection, but that should not stop other worthy causes from asking to be considered. All donations, no matter how large or how small are very gratefully recieved.

The best way of doing this is by writing to the Mayor's office before Christmas so that your letter can be given to the Mayor Elect as soon as their identity is known.
