The Mayor's charities for 2019-20 are:-

The Encephalitis Society - www.encephalitis.info

Encephalitis is an inflammation of the brain caused by either an infection or the immune system attacking the brain. Anyone at any age can get encephalitis and there are up to 6,000 cases in the UK each year. It can cause permanent damage and lifelong disability. The Encephalitis Society funds important research, works to raise awareness of the condition and provides invaluable support to those whose lives have been affected by encephalitis.

About his decision to support the Encephalitis Society, Cllr Chris O'Rourke stated "It is something both mine and Kathleen's family have suffered with, and my aim is to raise awareness of the condition and how it affects people and their families"

The Higham Ferrers Community

This year a portion of the funds raised by our Mayor will be split between various clubs, groups and charities that are local to Higham Ferrers. This money will help to improve the lives of our local residents and provide important services to the community.

About his decision to support the wider Higham Ferrers Community Cllr Chris O'Rourke stated: "The many Mayoral events alongside annual town events would not be possible without the help and support of all our local groups, who give their time freely working in conjunction with the town council to make them successful. That is why I have decided to nominate 'Higham Ferrers Community' as one of my good causes"

All Mayoral events are held to raise money for these worthy causes. Details of the events planned for this year can be found on the Town Council website.
