Oswestry Town Mayor, Councillor Jay Moore, is fundraising for mental health and wellbeing charities that support young people, as part of the Mayoral Charity during his civic year.
Cllr Jay Moore has long championed mental health for young people, and he aims to raise over £1,000 for his chosen charities.
He comments, “As we all know, mental health and wellbeing is a massive issue. As a youth worker and teacher, I have seen first-hand the impact it has on our young people. An overwhelmed NHS and CAMHS system are simply unable to cater to the sheer volume of young people needing help. As such, I have elected to champion this cause as the Mayoral Charity for my civic year.
“It is my intention to fundraise using as many methods as possible, and to distribute those funds to any local services and charities that focus on our younger residents and help them through whatever struggles they may be facing”.
During this year’s Oswestry Christmas Live on Friday 2nd December, there will be two free rides at Festival Square (Igloo Slide & Curling Alley) with donations welcome to the Mayor’s charity fund.
There is also a fundraising evening at Wednesdays Cafe Bar with DJ Mike on Saturday, 3rd December from 7pm with ‘Jingle Bell Bangers and Christmas Karaoke’.
