Mayor charity launch 2018 with cellists

This Mayor's Charity Appeal includes:

  • The Peter Pan and Wendy Children's Ward at Hillingdon Hospital.
  • Phab Hillingdon - a charity that brings together young people with and without disabilities during Phab Week, which is organised and fundraised for by St Helen's and Merchant Taylors' students.
  • Grangewood School in Eastcote - a primary school for children with severe learning difficulties and physical and complex needs.

The event was attended by more than 90 guests and representatives from each charity delivered moving presentations about their worthwhile causes. 

Guests were also treated to live music from talented cellists Nicola Tait and Eleanor Morgan. 

A raffle offering donated prizes raised £260 to kick start the charity appeal, which was matched by Barclays, making a total of £520.

Councillor John Morgan, the Mayor of Hillingdon, said: "I am sure residents will agree that the three charities I have selected do wonderful work within the community and are very worthwhile causes. I am keen to raise as much money as possible, and ask everyone to donate what they can."
