The Mayor's Charities

Each year, the Mayor chooses a set of charities for donations to be offered. Each Mayor makes their own choice. This is my choice for this coming year:

  • Buckingham Youth Centre - helping young people in our Town
  • BACAB - raising money to support Citizens Advice locally
  • Bucks Mind - for people and well-being

If you wish to make a donation to the Mayor's Charities Virtual Bucket (as it were), you can transfer money to this account:

Account name: Buckingham Town Council Mayors Charity Fund
Account sort code: 30-91-39
Account number: 00678744

Or you can send a cheque, made payable as above, to the TC offices: Buckingham Town Council, The Buckingham Centre, Verney Close, Buckingham, MK18 1JP

Thank you

More information about the three charities can be found here:

Statement from my first year (2017/2018)

As someone who has been working with young people in various ways for much of my life, including volunteering for the NSPCC for four years as a Schools Service facilitator and being a member of the local youth club management committee, two choices were easy. The third charity is also close to my heart as because I am committed to ensuring that children across the world get to live safely and have dreams & ambitions, and all the wherewithal to achieve those. So consequently I chose these three charities: Buckingham Youth Centre, NSPCC and UNICEF.
