Over 20,000 raised by Hyndburn’s Mayor throughout 2019 – 2021

Outgoing Mayor and Mayoress of Hyndburn, Councillor June Harrison and Councillor Joyce Plummer have raised over 20,000 since being elected in 2019. 

Councillor June Harrison said: 

“I would like to offer my heartfelt thanks to my Mayoral Charity Committee and all the staff who have supported me throughout my extended period as Mayor. In 2019/2020 we raised 16,000 which was distributed throughout many local charities to help them continue the great work they do in our community.  

“Due to the pandemic our term as Mayor and Mayoress was extended for one year and we chose to support the Hyndburn Hub. With events and many of the usual fundraising opportunities being cancelled we chose to set up an online just giving page. 

“Over 5,500 was raised through this page and many individuals, businesses and organisations contributed. I am very pleased to announce this money will be distributed amongst the foodbanks in Hyndburn, who continue to help anyone in need in our borough.  

“I wish our new Mayor, Deputy Mayor and Consort all the best and know they will do a fantastic job for our district over the coming year.”
