Charities are set to receive a funding boost from Carlisle mayor Marilyn Bowman.
She has donated an extra £842 to Eden Valley Jigsaw children’s hospice and an extra £1,142 to CFM Cash for Kids. Both charities have also previously received £4,000 each from the Mayor’s Charity Fund during her extended two year-term.
The mayor is also donating an additional £1,000 to Guide Dogs. It has also previously received £4,000 from the Mayor’s Charity Fund and she will get to sponsor and name a puppy.
In total she has raised £14,985.02 and has distributed her funds on two occasions to support her charities during her extended two year-term.
Coun Bowman said: “It’s been an honour to be mayor for the last two years, and it’s been a privilege to meet the many members of our community who are volunteers for our local charities and support organisations.
“CFM’s Cash for Kids, the Jigsaw Appeal and Guide Dogs are charities close to my heart and I’m delighted that I was in the position to support them.
“Carlisle has a proud history of our citizens pulling together in the face of great adversity and during the pandemic, communities have supported each other. Local charities are key to the recovery and I ask you all to support them in whatever way you can.”
