Mayor's Charity Donation
Councillor Andy Hollis, the outgoing Mayor of #Todmorden, visited The Rescue Post on Tuesday 21st May. He enjoyed a guided tour of the base and demonstration of equipment, before presenting the team with two donation cheques.
His Mayoral Charity for 2018-2019 was Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team and over the last year he has hosted several events. The highlights have been Jazzical, a classical/jazz concert and hosting Integrate, a local organisation seeking to bring communities together, for elevenses. Twelve people were expected but around 60 turned up of all ages and ethnicities, accompanied by a photography team from the Home Office!
We are extremely grateful to have received donations of over £4000 in total while being the Mayor’s charity. We rely solely on public donations to remain operational, so this level of support is invaluable.
Thanks to Andy for supporting CVSRT during his tenure. It really is much appreciated by everyone involved in the team.
