Mayor’s charity raises thousands for good causes

AS his year as mayor closes, cllr David Windess’ mayor’s charity has raised just over £2,300.

The money will be split between Wiltshire Air Ambulance and Diabetes UK, which was chosen by cllr Windess. He said, “With the Air Ambulance I think it’s an invaluable service, one you hope you will never need but it’s comforting to know it’s there. I’m diabetic myself so that was a cause close to me anyway.” The people of Westbury have responded generously to the fundraisers, which have included a charity auction, quizzes, go-karting events, and a craft fair. Cllr Windess added, “It was just about getting as much as possible, and to get £2,300 in the current climate is absolutely fantastic. Thank you to all who contributed and took part in the events.”
