Charities benefit from Mayor’s Appeal

The former Mayor of Chesterfield has presented a cheque to her chosen charities as a result of the fundraising efforts during her extended term in office from 2020-2022.

Councillor Glenys Falconer raised £15,048.88 throughout her time in office, with the funds being split amongst her chosen charities. The Volunteer Centre will receive £9,029.33 and the Chesterfield Samaritans will receive £6,019.33.

They were presented with their cheque at a small reception in Chesterfield Town Hall on Tuesday 12 July.

Councillor Glenys Falconer, said:

“I was thrilled to be able to present these cheques to my chosen charities and celebrate my mayoral term with them in person. Covid-19 presented lots of challenges when fundraising, but we persevered and held several successful events on Zoom before restrictions started to ease so we could hold more in person events like the fantastic Gala Dinner.

“I want to thank everyone who has donated to the Mayor’s appeal and particularly to Cllrs Paul and Shirley Niblock who helped us organise so many wonderful events. I am certain these funds will make a real difference for these charities and help ensure they can continue to deliver their services in Chesterfield.”

Councillor Glenys Falconer served as Mayor from October 2020 to May 2022, with her husband Councillor Keith Falconer serving as Mayor’s Consort.

The Mayor’s Appeal is an annual charity drive led by the Mayor of Chesterfield to raise funds for charities of their choice.
