Fundraising for this years Mayors chosen charities has got off to a flying start… with almost £4,000 raised at the charity launch event alone!
This year, Cllr Gaynor Oliver has chosen to support two charitable causes during her time in office - Helping Hands and Ty Hafan. Local Rhymney based charity Helping Hands is a non profit organisation set up to support seriously ill residents of the Upper Rhymney Valley by providing a range of support services Ty Hafan offers comfort, care and support for life-limited children and young people, and is dedicated to improving the quality of life for the whole family.
The charities were announced during a recent launch evening at Caerphilly County Borough Council's headquarters Penallta House, where guests raised an impressive £3,800.
