Mayor’s appeal off to a flying start

Borough Mayor, Councilor Rajash Mehta, recently launched his charity appeal 'Building Bridges - Bringing Communities Together' amid colourful costumes and classical dance performances at Dawley Town Hall, raising £1,700.

Local students from Malasa School of Dance and the Hindu Temple Bhangra Group, entertained Telford-based support groups as well as dignitaries from across Shropshire, Walsall and Birmingham with classical dance routines.

Guests contributed to the Mayor’s appeal which has a primary focus around the themes of children and young people, the elderly and vulnerable and those with special needs.

It will also provide assistance to community and voluntary groups working to support the multi-faith community and broaden diversity within the Borough of Telford & Wrekin.

Mayor of Telford & Wrekin Council, Councillor Rajash Mehta said: "Thank you to everyone who came to the launch, the fund has got off to a flying start which will mean a boost for some of the amazing community and voluntary groups in the borough. 

"My role in office means I get to work with communities every day and I’ve made it my mission to help celebrate and support the many great things that go on all the time and what a wonderful place we live in.” 

In particular, the fund will seek to assist small local voluntary organisations who are undertaking valuable work in the community but do not have the required resources for seeking funds. 

For more details of ways in which you can get involved or how to apply for a grant, please contact the Mayor’s Office on 01952 380110 or visit here.
