Chairman of Mid Suffolk donates to chosen charity

Posted by on 24 September 2020 | Comments

Mid Suffolk District Council Chairman, Cllr Lavinia Hadingham has donated £1244.78 to her chosen Charity, Home-Start Mid and West Suffolk raised during her term as Chairman.

She said “My extended year as Chairman has been both an interesting and a demanding one, particularly with the challenges of the COVID -19 pandemic. I have seen our communities rally together to support each other and go the extra mile.

"I have been thrilled with the support for the fundraising events I hosted last year, at the Hog Roast Afternoon last summer and the Christmas Civic Service. I may not have been able to host as many events as I had hoped, but to have raised over a thousand pounds it a great testimony to the support I received for my year as Chairman and more deservedly the hard work of Home-Start.

Carol Read Chair of Trustees Home-Start Mid and West Suffolk said: 

“We are delighted with fundraising efforts and donation we have received and want to thank Cllr Hadingham for her support during her year as Chairman. Her support has brought in much needed funds and has also helped us to raise our profile across the district.

The work we do is about early intervention support to prevent a situation turning into a crisis, and in these precedented times the need to empower parents with young children is even greater.”
