Fundraising schools could win a Mayor’s Charity trophy

Schoolchildren that raise money for Mayor of West Lancashire’s Charity could be in line to win a great reward.

To assist with her fundraising activities, the Mayor of West Lancashire, Councillor Liz Savage, has organised three trophies for schools to encourage them to get involved in raising money for the worthy causes she is supporting. These are the Neo-Natal Unit at Ormskirk Hospital; the Artz Centre, Birch Green; The Civic in Ormskirk and the Birchwood Centre, Skelmersdale.

One of the trophies will be presented to the school which raises the most money. Another will be for the school which raises the most money per pupil, and another will be for the school which has the most innovative fundraising idea.

So far six schools are involved. To enter, schools should organise an event to raise money for the Mayor’s Charity. Further details may be obtained from Member Services, West Lancashire Borough Council, 52 Derby Street, Ormskirk, L39 2DF, or please email jill.ryan@westlancs.gov.uk or telephone 01695 585017.

Councillor Savage said: “I am working hard with the Mayor’s Charity Committee to raise money for these very worthy causes and we thought creating these trophies would be a great way of encouraging schools to become involved. So if you can help please get in contact with us and you could be in with a chance of winning.”

Winners will be presented with their trophies around the end of her Mayoral year, which will be in May 2017.
