Mayoress’s event raises over £1,500 for Children’s Hospices

An event organised by the Mayoress of Morley, Lisa Finnigan, has raised over £1,500 for two local children’s hospices, the Forget-Me-Not Fund and Martin House.  The ladies only event, held last Saturday (27th January), saw a ‘day at the races’ come to Morley Town Hall when over 70 ladies attended the fund raiser.

Lisa Finnigan said “The idea behind the event was to raise as much money as we could for these amazing charities by having an ‘Afternoon Tea at the Races’ in Morley Town Hall.  Over 70 ladies attended in their finery and gave generously at the televised race programme while they were served afternoon tea.’

The afternoon tea was served, along with sparkling wine with those attending being able to bet on horses, as well as contributing towards a raffle.  The event was also attended by the Deputy Mayor and Mayoress, Councillor Roger and Mrs Christine Bell.

Councillor Robert Finnigan, the Mayor of Morley said “I am grateful for the help and support we have received from so many across the local area.  We also received sponsorship from many local businesses for this event.  The event has raised much needed funds to support he brilliant work both children’s hospices undertake to support families of children with life limiting conditions.”
