£500 donation from the Mayor's Charity Fund

The outgoing Mayor, Councillor Richard Porthouse, held a reception at Jarrow Town Hall on  Monday 7 November to distribute the proceeds raised by the Mayor's Charity Fund during his year in office. Various groups across the Borough received donations; we were presented with a cheque for £500.

It has been confirmed that we have been chosen as one of the principal charities to be supported by the current mayor, Councillor Alan Smith, during his tenure.
