Join Newbury’s Mayor for a fund-raising banquet

Councillor Billy Drummond’s final charity event of his term as Mayor of Newbury will be a Fundraising Banquet, held in aid of Newbury Speakability and the Mayor’s Benevolent Fund.

The black-tie event will take place on Saturday 9 April at the Chequers Hotel in Newbury.

Guests will have the chance to meet Newbury’s popular Mayor, and help to raise money for charity. Tickets are just £60 a head, to include a welcome drink, a three-course meal, and music with a DJ and disco. There will also be a silent auction and a raffle taking place throughout the evening to raise additional funds for the two charities.

Booking is essential as there are limited tickets available.

The Mayor of Newbury, Councillor Drummond said,

“I would like to invite everyone to come along to my Fundraising Banquet. I am really excited about bringing people together for an evening at the Chequers Hotel raising money for two excellent charities. The Mayor’s Benevolent Fund helps local people and organisations in financial need, and Speakability helps people (like me) who are stroke survivors with aphasia.”

Aphasia is a common condition following stroke which affects the ability to communicate.
