Chairman's dinner raises cash for children's organisations
2:40pm Thursday 31st October 2013 in News
RICHMONDSHIRE-based charities are to benefit from a year of fundraising by the district council's chairman.
Councillor Rob Johnson is supporting the Catterick Village Guide and Scout Groups and the Michael Syddall School in Catterick Village during his year in office. And his first event – his civic dinner - raised £455 for the pot.
“Both these charities are close to my heart and very worthy causes,” Coun Johnson said.
“To raise so much money at my first event was wonderful. “I would like to thank local businesses and individuals who provided raffle prizes - and Richmondshire Cricket Club for making the event the success it was.
“They did everything from decorating the room to providing top class food and their service was amazing.”
