Surprise! Mayor’s Charity Fund ‘cheque bombing’ presentations

HEDON Mayor and Mayoress, Councillor John Dennis and Mrs Jennifer Dennis, have been ‘springing’ surprises on community groups in the area with giant cheque presentations representing donations from the Mayor’s Charity Funds. These are some of the last acts of the current 668th Mayor and his wife who end their civic term next Thursday 28th May 2015.

On Tuesday Hedon Guides were subject to a ‘cheque bombing’ amidst their craft activities at the Methodist Church and were donated £200. Later in his role as guest Chairman at the Annual General Meeting of Hedon Museum Society at the Town Hall, the Mayor presented the Society’s actual Chairman Gordon Rutherford with a surprise cheque, this time for £500.

    • You’re welcome Vic.
      Just to clarify, the monies haven’t come from council funds but from monies raised by the mayor for charity during his year of office.
