The Mayor of Newbury’s final charity event will be a fundraising banquet at the Checkers Hotel

The Mayor of Newbury’s last charity event before the end of his term will be a fundraising banquet, Newbury City Council has announced.

Taking place on Saturday 9th April at the Checkers Hotel, the black tie event is being held in support of Newbury Speakability and the Mayor’s Benevolent Fund.

Tickets for the evening cost £60 and include a welcome drink, three-course meal and after-dinner disco with DJ.

The fundraising banquet is taking place at the Checkers Hotel on Saturday, April 9

Newbury Mayor Billy Drummond said: “I would like to invite everyone to come to my fundraising banquet.

“I’m so excited to bring people together for a night out at the Checkers Hotel, to raise money for two great charities.

“The Mayor’s Benevolent Fund helps local people and organizations in need, and Speakability helps people (like me) who have been stroke survivors with aphasia.”

A silent auction and raffle will also take place during the banquet to raise additional funds for both charities.

Group discounts are available, but booking is essential as limited tickets are available.
