Leading disability charity Enham Trust will be ‘kidnapping’ the Worshipful the Mayor of Test Valley, Cllr Karen Hamilton, during a day-long fundraising event on 23rd June.
Held opposite The Guildhall in Andover town centre between 10am and 2pm, the event will see the charity ‘kidnap’ the Mayor from her parlour and hold her in a bamboo ‘jail’ in the time-ring; unable to leave until all collection tins are full or she has secured 10 fundraising events & initiatives from local businesses and community groups on behalf of the charity throughout the year.
“We’re delighted that The Mayor is able to support us in this way,” comments Enham Trust’s Community Engagement Officer Sheryl Scott-Clarke. “However, we won’t be setting her free until at least all our collection tins are full, so if you wish to help save the Mayor, come along and donate!”
This event marks the first in a series of initiatives planned between the Trust and the Mayor of Test Valley; Enham Trust being one of the Mayor’s chosen charities of the year.
All funds raised will go towards Enham Trust’s vital work across the country – supporting 7,500 disabled and disadvantaged people to live lives of choice, control, and independence.
