Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

MAYOR of Hillingdon John Hens­ley has launched his char­ity ap­peal by an­nounc­ing which good causes he will be sup­port­ing.

He was joined by coun­cil leader Cllr Ray Pud­di­foot and a num­ber of coun­cil­lors and rep­re­sen­ta­tives from lo­cal busi­nesses and or­gan­i­sa­tions at the Hy­att Place Heathrow Ho­tel on June 28.

Res­i­dents from Bev­er­ley Road, in Ruis­lip Manor, pre­sented the mayor with a cheque for £800, which they raised dur­ing their Queen’s 90th birth­day cel­e­bra­tion street party. This, to­gether with the pro­ceeds of a raf­fle and matched fund­ing from Bar­clays, brought to­tal do­na­tions for the evening to £1,880.

The Mayor of Hillingdon’s char­ity ap­peal will cel­e­brate the theme of a ‘jour­ney through life’ and the mayor’s cho­sen four char­i­ties il­lus­trate this, span­ning from early years, Pield Heath House School, to the end of life, with Har­ling­ton Hos­pice.

He is also sup­port­ing the Paul Strick­land Scan­ner Ap­peal and the Royal Bromp­ton and Hare­field Hos­pi­tals Char­ity.

The mayor has said that he hopes to en­cour­age com­mu­nity co­he­sion and wants to meet many groups, clubs, or­gan­i­sa­tions and in­di­vid­u­als who work to im­prove the life and well­be­ing of oth­ers dur­ing his time in of­fice.

He said: “It was an ex­cel­lent op­por­tu­nity to get my char­ity ap­peal off to a great start, with do­na­tions from the kind res­i­dents of Bev­er­ley Road and sup­port from Bar­clays. I’d also like to thank Hy­att Place Ho­tel for gen­er­ously host­ing the event.

“I hope oth­ers will join me in get­ting be­hind these great char­i­ties, by do­nat­ing to sup­port their im­por­tant work, help­ing the res­i­dents of Hillingdon in their jour­ney through life.”
