Chairman of Mid Suffolk donates to chosen charity
Mid Suffolk District Council Chairman, Cllr Barry Humphreys MBE has donated £1,000 raised during his term in office to his chosen charity, Stowmarket Dementia Action Alliance.
Chairman, Cllr Barry Humphreys MBE said “My year as Chairman has been interesting and challenging, but I have really enjoyed being able to serve the council and my community.
“I chose the Stowmarket DAA because of the great work they do helping residents and their families in Mid Suffolk affected by dementia. I am deeply appreciative of everyone that has supported me, particularly those who took part in my Christmas appeal, to help raise much needed funds for a very worthwhile cause.”
Fiona Palmer, Chair of Stowmarket Dementia Action Alliance, said: “We are thrilled with this donation and want to thank Cllr Humphreys for his support during what I sure was a thought-provoking year as Chairman. His support is gratefully received particularly, as we have not been able to fundraise in our usual way because of the pandemic. This has made his donation even more appreciated.”
