Have a cuppa with the Mayor!

Residents and town centre shoppers can call into Ilkeston Town Hall to have a cuppa with the Mayor of Erewash, Councillor Mary Hopkinson, when she hosts a charity coffee morning on Saturday 16 December between 10am and 12noon.
 
The warm and welcoming event will be in the Mayor’s Parlour and will raise funds for the Mayor’s chosen charities – Alzheimer’s Research, Sight Support Derbyshire, The Canaan Trust and Ben’s Den, an Ilkeston-based charity that provide holidays for families with children diagnosed with cancer and leukaemia.
 
Councillor Mary Hopkinson, the Mayor of Erewash, says:
 
“These charities are very close to my heart so I wanted to host this Christmas coffee morning to raise as much money as possible to help them in the work they do. I’m sure the town centre will be busy with festive shoppers, so please take a break and have a warming cup of coffee with me.”
 
A raffle will also be held during the morning, with tickets 50p each, to boost the fundraising further.
