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. This year’s Mayor, Councillor Mohammed Javed, has chosen three charities:
- The Halo Project
- The Great North East Air Ambulance
- Macmillan Cancer Support
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 Javed is searching for 100 Heroes to raise money for these three 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 100 people 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 Go Fund Me.
If you'd like to become one of the Mayor's 100 heroes, please contact [email protected].
