The Mayor's 100 Heroes
Each year, the Mayor of Stockton-on-Tees chooses charities to raise money for during their time in the role. The Mayor for 2020/21 Councillor Mohammed Javed started 100 Heroes, a challenge aiming to get local people fundraising for his chosen charities. Over the year the fundraisers raised an incredible £4,328! Some baked, some walked, ran and cycled, and some even lost weight to raise money for the causes. A huge thank you to all who got involved, especially during the difficulties that lockdown often posed.
This year’s Mayor, Councillor Kevin Faulks, has taken on the challenge to continue 100 Heroes and has chosen to support two charities:
Fundraising in the usual ways is not possible at the moment because of the Coronavirus pandemic and that’s why the Mayor is calling for your help!
Councillor Faulks is continuing the search for heroes to raise money for these two great causes. Whether you take on a challenge, start a bake sale, or take part in a talent show to raise money, we're looking for volunteers to get involved and raise a minimum of £100 each.
Take a look at some of the fundraising people have done so far below. You can see how much has been raised so far on the Mayor's GoFundMe.
