The Mayor's chosen charity this year

The Mayor’s chosen charities this year will benefit 'Team Max' raising money for children's cancer services at Addenbrooke's Charitable Trust.  Team Max are going to raise funds towards a new Emergency Children's Ambulance Service for Children in the East of England: Adults and new-born babies in our region who need intensive care treatment for complex conditions are blue-lighted by a dedicated, specialist ambulance service to Addenbrooke's Hospital.  Surprisingly, there is no such service in our region that can specifically provide intensive care for critically ill children.  This service will benefit on average 1,700 children a year.

If you would like to make a donation to the Mayor's charity please email [email protected] or telephone 01799 619841 and ask for the Mayor's Secretary, Elaine.
