"Thank you for taking the time to look at our Mayor’s Charity web page. As chairman of the charity committee I would just like to inform you of what we do and why we do it. The purpose of the charity is to support the current Mayor of Ramsgate to give out financial support to local charities at the end of the Mayoral year."
The committee is formed from local people who arrange local fundraising events and invite local people and other Mayors in the area to attend.
The four main charities planned to receive funds this year are the Ramsgate Sea Cadets, Thanet Disabled Riding Centre, Headway and Ramsgate Sea Scouts.
Last year the Mayor presented cheques to local charities to the value of £3,400 and they hope to raise more this year.
