Broadland: Chairman raises £3,583 for local charity

Cllr Karen Vincent presents the Big C with a cheque

At the Council’s AGM on 27th May, Councillor Karen Vincent stood down from the role of Broadland District Council Chairman, a position that she had held for two years.

Councillor Vincent said:

“It has been a privilege to serve as Chairman and particularly so during the coronavirus pandemic.  One of the most rewarding parts of the role has been meeting inspirational people who do so much to help others.

“During my time in office I have seen the very best that people have to offer and was able to recognise some amazing acts of kindness and selflessness from our COVID-19 Community Heroes and Community at Heart Award winners.  As I step down as Chairman, I would like to extend my thanks to everyone who supported our District and communities through such a challenging time. I hope the recovery in Broadland will be that much faster because of your efforts.”

“Being Chairman also gives an opportunity to raise money for a chosen charity.  Big C, Norfolk’s Cancer Charity is a cause close to my heart and I am pleased to have been able to help raise funds for Big C and its Closer to Home Appeal.”

Councillor Vincent raised £3,583 by holding cake sales, a charity auction, a Valentines dinner dance and presented a cheque to Dr Chris Bushby, CEO and David Moar, founder of the charity.
