Gildersome Sunday Funday

The Mayor of Morley, Councillor Robert Finnigan attended the Gildersome Sunday Funday on 3rd September at Gildersome Sports Club off Street Lane.  The event, organised by Gildersome Village resident Helen Jones and her team, brought hundreds of Gildersome residents out to support local charities, including Martin House hospice which the Mayor is supporting during his Mayoral year along with the Forget Me Not Fund.

Councillor Finnigan said “It was a pleasure and a delight to meet so many local people who are all committed to raising money for local charities.  Everyone was having a great time even if the weather was a little grey towards the end of the afternoon.  There was a fabulous dog show, tombolas, raffles and the event had a Scottish feel with Pipers playing the bagpipes!”

Councillor Finnigan also met Gildersome primary school student Isla Bentley, who is campaigning to be Leeds Children’s Mayor.  He said “Isla was asking me some very tough questions about being the Mayor and telling me about her manifesto for children and young people to reduce bullying in schools.  Isla is an excellent candidate and I hope people will back her campaign as she will make a superb Children’s Mayor for Leeds.”
