Former mayor hands over almost £37,000 to charity from year in office

A former Mayor of Dudley has handed over nearly £37,000 raised for charity during her term in office.

Sue Greenaway was Mayor from May 2022 to April this year.

The former mayor met representatives from her three chosen charities for 2022/23 – Santa’s Black Country Toy Appeal, Tough Enough to Care and Macmillan Cancer Support – in the mayor’s parlour at Dudley Council House last week.

A total of £36,845.03 was raised in her year in office, to be split equally between the three charities. Sue said:

“I was extremely proud and honoured to serve this borough as Mayor, and I’m absolutely delighted today to be able to hand over such a large amount of money to three very worthy charities.

“Tough Enough to Care offers support to men of all ages with mental health advice and helps to prevent suicide.

“Santa’s Black Country Toy Appeal raises money to help disadvantaged families ensure that all children have a toy at Christmas, while Macmillan Cancer Support helps millions of people and their families suffering with cancer.

“It has been a privilege to meet so many wonderful people from all walks of life during my mayoral year, and I want to thank everyone who donated to give us this wonderful sum to hand over today.”

The new Mayor of Dudley, Councillor Andrea Goddard, has chosen four charities to support in her year in office.

They are Dudley Community First Responders, Prostate Cancer UK, Mary Stevens Hospice and Up & Downs.
