Salford’s Ceremonial Mayor Councillor Karen Garrido is offering a packed programme of events up to Christmas to raise funds for her chosen charities.
She is aiming to raise enough money to refurbish a room next to the Haematology Unit at Salford Royal where patients receive treatment for cancer so children can visit patients and, through Kidneys for Life, to provide fistula bags for kidney patients.
Councillor Garrido has also launched a new charity – The Ceremonial Mayor’s Community Chest which will provide grants of up to £500 to community groups or individuals. It is open to everyone to bid for funds for things which will benefit Salford residents or help individuals achieve a personal goal.
