Bradley Stoke’s newly elected Mayor, Robert Jones, has chosen the National Association for Colitis and Crohn’s Disease (NACC) as the organisation to benefit from his charitable fundraising efforts during his year in office.
Last year’s Mayor, Julian Barge, raised £5823 for his his two chosen charities – the Bristol Urological Prostate Cancer Appeal and the Nicola Corry Support Foundation. The Mayor’s charity fund benefits from donations and special money-raising events held during the Mayor’s year in office – notably the Community Festival in June and the Fireworks Display in November.
In a press release issued by Bradley Stoke Town Council today, Councillor Jones reveals that he was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease five years ago. By choosing the organisation as his charity for the year, he hopes to raise awareness of Inflammatory Bowel Diseases as well as raising money to support the activities of the charity, which include research, information and support.
