Fireworks raise £4,000 for mayor’s charities

Bradley Stoke Town Council fireworks display.

This year’s Bradley Stoke Town Council fireworks display was again a great success.

Numbers attending the free event were up on last year and this was reflected in a healthy increase in voluntary charity donations.

This year, a total of £4,119 was raised for the mayor’s charities through donations, with £3,629 of the total coming from bucket collections and the remaining £490 coming from on-site traders (donut and burger vans).

The charities being supported by this year’s mayor, Andy Ward, are Cardiomyopathy UK and Freewheelers Emergency Voluntary Service.

Speaking at a recent council meeting, Cllr Ward gave thanks for the “outstanding support” from the volunteer marshals and bucket collectors, who came from a range of local groups, as well as council members and staff.
