THE amount raised for charities during Mayor of Rotherham Coun Shaun Wright’s period in charge was £47,198.34.
Money will be donated to Rotherham Alzheimer’s Society, Rotherham Macmillan Cancer Care and Information Service, Macmillan Cancer Care and Rotherham Children’s Trust.
Coun Wright said: “By any standards it has been a terrific year for the Mayor’s Charity.
“This is a record amount and for people to have been so generous, especially in these difficult times, is humbling and once again shows the kindness of the people of Rotherham. I have always maintained we live in a remarkable community and this is further evidence of how much the people of Rotherham care for the less fortunate.”
Cheques will be presented to the charities on July 27.
