THE Mayor of Knutsford has thanked businesses and residents for their generosity after a fundraising night in the town raised £1,400 for her chosen charities.
On Wednesday, September 18 Don Giovanni hosted an event in aid of the mayoral charities – the Knutsford and District Lions, Cheshire Search and Rescue and others.
Funds were raised through an auction and raffle on the night, with many businesses donating prizes.
“Don Giovanni’s were extremely generous in their support of my charities, giving a donation of 50 per cent of the ticket price sales, the proceeds from the auction and raffle, as well as one of the auction prizes,” said town mayor Barbara Coan.
Guests were also treated to a three-course dinner on the night.
Barbara added that she was ‘very touched and hugely appreciative’ of the support shown by local businesses, which showed a ‘real sense of community spirit’.
