Dinner boosts mayor's fund
4:00pm Wednesday 10th October 2012 in News
THE Mayor of Kidderminster’s charity fund doubled in one evening thanks to a successful dinner.
More than 90 guests attended the event at La Brasserie restaurant in the town and £1,000 was raised for Wyre Forest Mind, the mental health charity.
Mayor, Councillor John Aston, and Mayoress, Mal Craddock, chose to support Mind during their civic year and funds have already passed the £2,000 mark.
Wyre Forest Mind has been re-establishing services in the district this year and aims to improve the mental health of local people and assist those experiencing problems.
Mr Aston said: “Mal and I are keen to raise as much money as we can during our year to help an organisation that does vital work in the district.
“We are grateful to everyone who has supported us in our first five months and hope to boost the total raised with a number of events between now and next May.
