Mayor of Newbury hosts online raffle in aid of the Mayor's Benevolent Fund

Date: 30 November 2020

The Mayor of Newbury has set up an online raffle to help raise funds for her charity The Mayor’s Benevolent Fund. 

The Covid-19 pandemic has put a stop to the Mayor’s usual fundraising activities, especially around this time of year when, in previous years there would have been events in the Town Hall, including coffee mornings and quizzes. 

The Mayor of Newbury, Cllr Elizabeth O’Keeffe, “Raising funds for The Mayor’s Benevolent Fund has been difficult this year given that the traditional events could not take place. We hope that in running this raffle we will raise much needed funds to support those in need in our community. I am very grateful to local businesses who have so generously donated some great prizes.” 

The raffle will run from 1 December to 20 December and the winners will be drawn on Monday 21 December.  Prizes include a day at the races for two at Newbury Racecourse, Waitrose & Partners vouchers, a meal at The Woodspeen, a £25 Hobbycraft voucher and a Christmas food and drinks hamper.
