The Mayor's Charities

During his year as Mayor Councillor Patterson is working to raise awareness and much needed funds for his chosen charity which is the Historic Counties Trust.

The Historic Counties Trust

The Historic Counties Trust takes care of the heritage of the 92 historic counties of the UK. The Tees marks the meeting of two of Britain's greatest counties, each with a rich tapestry of histories and identities: County Durham and Yorkshire. The Trust seeks to mark this and ensure those that live in the counties benefit from the long tradition and help shape the future.

Visit the Historic Counties Trust website to learn more about the charity.

Other charities

Mayor Councillor Patterson will also be giving a donation to Great North Air Ambulance Service and Remembering Rebecca at the end of the year. Find out more about these charities at the Remembering Rebecca website and the Great North Air Ambulance website.


The Mayor has launched a very special project to help raise vital funds. He is looking for 100 heros to raise a minimum of £100 each by taking on a personal challenge. To sign-up call 01642 528172, or send an email to
