Three charities have benefitted from the kind donations raised by a former mayor.

Coun Clem Walden, who was mayor of Stamford for the 2014/15 term, was delighted to be able to hand over the money raised during his mayoral year to his three nominated charities - a total of £6,000.

The beneficiaries were the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance, the Stamford Carers Sitters Service and the 2071 [Stamford] Squadron Air Training Corps and representatives from each of the good causes attended a cheque presentation in the mayor’s parlour at Stamford Town Hall on Tuesday.

Coun Walden said the charities were worthwhile causes close to his heart and he was delighted to be able to hand over such a significant sum.

The mayor for this year is Susan Sandall. She has chosen to support the Friends of Stamford Hospital, Stamford Macmillan Nurses, The Shack youth club at the Recreation Ground and Christ Church Day Centre.
