When Cllr Paddy Allen became the Mayor of Amesbury in 2016 so choose Home-Start South Wiltshire to be her charity of the year.
Throughout her term, Paddy has held many successful events with the help of her husband Cllr Richard Allen and a great fundraising team. The events held included a BBQ, a skittles night and a Gala dinner all of which were well attended and not only raised us money but helped to spread the word of the valuable work that our charity does.
This week our Chair, Lisa, met with Paddy and Richard and was presented with a cheque totalling over £2800. We cannot thank the Mayor and her team enough for the amazing fundraising they have done for us over the past year and this money will go straight back into the community by us supporting local Amesbury families. Also we would like to say thank you to everyone that took the time to attend one of the events, without this sort of support small local charities cannot survive.
