Title:Charities set to benefit from former Civic Mayor's charity fund

The previous Civic Mayor’s charity fund is set for a bumper boost after hard working fundraisers helped raise more than £8,000 for The Partially Blind Society and the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association (SSAFA).

Thanks to the selfless efforts of fundraisers the former Civic Mayor Eddie Dobbs will accept cheques from fundraising events which were held whilst he was in the civic office.

The cheque presentations will be held at the Mansion House on Wednesday 13 August.

Kenny and Karen Bonsall will be attending. They have raised money for the Charity Fund in aid of SSAFA, via the Lee Bonsall Memorial Trust, in memory of their son.

The couple are committed to raising the profile of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and the impact it has on young service personnel, veterans and their families, in memory of their son. SSAFA provide Caseworkers who try to support those who are experiencing these difficulties.

Eddie Dobbs said: ‘I am proud to be able to accept these cheques and grateful to everyone who helped raise this money for these wonderful charities.’

The Partially Blind Society will receive £729 and SSAFA will be presented with £7,729 (£7,000 donated in memory of Lee Bonsall).
