Cllr Billy Drummond’s final charity event during his term as Mayor of Newbury will be a ‘Fundraising Banquet’ 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.

If you would like to meet the Mayor and help to raise some money for two very worthwhile charities, tickets are just £60 a head and include a welcome drink, a three-course meal and music with a DJ and disco after dinner. There will also be a silent auction and a raffle taking place throughout the evening to raise additional funds for the two charities.

Group booking discounts are available so you can get a group of friends or work colleagues together for a special night out. Booking is essential as there are limited tickets available.

The Mayor of Newbury, Cllr Billy 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.”

To book your tickets, contact the Mayor’s Office by emailing mayor@newbury.gov.uk or by calling 07538 334 106. Group booking discounts are also available.
