The donations are going to Teenage Cancer Trust Wales  and the Forget-Me-Not Chorus – an organisation which organises choirs and singing activities for people who have varying degrees of dementia and their families.

Receiving the cheques on behalf of the two charities were Debbie Jones who is the regional fundraising manager for the Teenage Cancer Trust and Kate Woolveridge who, with colleague Sarah Teagle,  is one of the two directors of the Forget Me Not Chorus.

On Thursday this week Forget Me Not is initiating its new fourth choir in South Wales – which is being established in Penarth because it links into the local work that the charity is already carrying out in the town.

Kate says recruitment to the choir is by “word of mouth” . The Forget-me-Not Chorus can be reached by Email on hello@forgetmenotchorus.com and by phone on 02922 362064

The two PYA representatives  both received the formal thanks of the Mayor for the many and various tasks PYA members had performed during all the Mayor’s fund-raising events .

The total amount raised, which is being split between the two charities, is £9,047 – which is the largest amount ever raised by any Penarth Town Mayor. Cllr  Cook steps down at the end of her 12 month term of office on Friday this week.
