Pendle's former Mayor chooses charities
4:29pm Wednesday 14th August 2013 in News
PENDLE’S former Mayor has chosen three charities to benefit from his year as the borough’s first citizen.
Coun Asjad Mahmood and his wife Samina helped raise more than £11,600 between May 2012 and May 2013.
The money will be split between Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research, Rainbows Development Therapy Nursery at The Holden Centre, in Barrowford, and Derian House Children’s Hospice, in Chorley.
Coun Mahmood said: “We had such an amazing Mayoral year during which we met so many people from Pendle and beyond.
“It was particularly special to be Mayor and Mayoress during a year which celebrated the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the London 2012 Olympics.
“Samina and I would like to thank everyone who supported the Mayoress’ Charity Fund during the year. Without your support we simply wouldn’t have been able to raise such a staggering sum for these three very deserving charities.”
This year’s Mayor of Pendle, Coun Smith Benson, and his daughter Margaret Ingham are currently fundraising for their chosen charities - Rosemere Cancer Foundation, St John Ambulance and Pendleside Hospice.
