Imagineering has had a boost in funds thanks to a year of fundraising under the mayor’s charities.
Imagineering chair, Bob Shanks accepted a cheque for £2,000 on behalf of the charity which was chosen as one to benefit from fundraising for Cllr George Illingworth’s year in office.
Imagineering promotes engineering and technology for young people and was chosen by the former mayor to benefit from ongoing help.
Bob Shanks said: “We are very grateful for this donation. It enables us to widen our network of clubs, inspire more young engineers of the future and provide more children with the opportunity to learn new skills and enjoy new experiences.
“We need more volunteers to help us with the work and we know they will find it very rewarding.”
