Support the Mayor’s Charity Fund for 2021/22

Each year, the Mayor of Biggleswade raises funds for a chosen charity. At the end of the Mayoral year in May, the funds are used to support those in need residing in and around Biggleswade.

Last year’s recipient of the Mayor’s Charity Fund was Sue Ryder St John’s Hospice. The charity helps to support people through the most difficult time of their lives. The generosity of the residents of Biggleswade resulted in donations totalling £582.12, which provided 30 hours of expert care to people in Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire suffering from cancer, heart failure, lung disease and motor neurone disease.

With the unprecedented circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Mayor of Biggleswade, Madeline Russell, was forced to cancel the 2020 nd 2021 Civic Services.

This event is an opportunity to focus on the community of Biggleswade and to recognise and thank the many individuals who do so much for our town in so many ways. Consequently, until events can safely be held again, donations have added importance in these extremely challenging times.

This year, Councillor Russell has chosen to support Sue Ryder St John’s Hospice, which provides expert care for life-limiting conditions.  The Hospice combines expert medical care with other emotional, practical and spiritual support.

All donations are welcome and can really help to make a difference in people’s lives. To support this year’s worthy cause, please click here to donate.
