Two charities have benefitted from the Brigg Town Mayor’s Appeal for 2013/14.

Coun John Kitwood, who stood down as Mayor last month, announced the appeal proceeds had totalled £1,500.

And he presented cheques for £750 to Brigg Carers Centre and to the Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance.

Trevor Cherry, a local fundraiser, received the air ambulance cheque before the latest town council meeting held in the Angel Suite.

He told councillors that in 2013 there had been 851 missions flown by the ambulance and so far in 2014 there had been 284.

Vice Chair of the Brigg 
Carers Centre Delysia 
Thomas, together with trustee Heather Redshaw, received the cheque on behalf of the centre.

Before the presentation, Coun Kitwood thanked all those in the community who had attended the various fund raising efforts during the past year, including the civic banquet.
