Youth fitness and community homelessness are causes close to his heart.

Having returned from his family holiday, The Mayor of Wisbech, Cllr Aigars Balsevics, has provided information about local causes that are close to his heart and for which he has commenced his fundraising activities.

Not only has he placed three fundraising pots in each of the pubs that he manages, he is appealing to local shops and businesses to contact him if they are willing to help by having a pot on their premises.

Cllr Balsevics said, "I hope to have ten local businesses helping me to fundraise, but if more come forward that will be excellent and we will hand out more. I want to be able to visit each business to give them their fundraising pot and to say a personal 'thank you' for their support. With the current Covid-19 regulations, organising events is quite difficult, but I have a couple of ideas that I will share shortly."

The community causes selected by the Mayor are

  • The Rosmini Centre
    • Particularly towards their support to people who are homeless, the English as a Second Language support they provide and the overall integration of the Wisbech community.
  • Local Sports Groups
    • Particularly those aimed at local children to get fit or learn a new skill in gymnastics, swimming and tennis.

If you are a shop or business and would like the Mayor to visit you with a fundraising pot, please contact info@wisbechtowncouncil.gov.uk

If you would like to make a donation to the Mayor's chosen causes, please also contact him via info@wisbechtowncouncil.gov.uk
