An end of life hospice has received almost £7,000 thanks to months of fundraising work by the Mayor of Skegness supported by local businesses and organisations.
Coun Mark Anderson announced the impressive total, raised for the Butterfly Hospice - the chosen charity for his mayoral year - at a recent Skegness Town Council meeting.
David Middleton, who is Pastor at the Storehouse on Grand Parade presented Coun Anderson with yet more funds for the hospice at the meeting. Coun Anderson thanked Mr Middleton and congratulated The Storehouse for its achievements in less than a year of opening.
He said: “What has been achieved without public money beggars belief .”
Other recent donations included £300 from the English Bowling Federation and £500 from Coun Anderson’s supported football team West Ham United FC.
He also expects to raise a significant sum during a charity ball to be held at Grand Central on November 30, for which tickets costing £30 are still available from the venue or hospice on 01205 311222.
