Press Release-Durham County Council

Published April 14, 2011.

The Chairman of Durham County Council has presented a much-needed cash windfall to a North East charity.

As his year in office nears an end, Cllr Mac Williams JP, has this week handed over cheques to both of his chosen charities.

Following a £10,000 cash boosat to the George Elmy Lifeboat Restoration Fund, Cllr Williams presented the Down’s Syndrome Association North East with a cheque for £5,000.

Ros Collinson on behalf of the Association, said: “This is a wonderful gesture and every penny received from Cllr Williams will be used to enrich the lives of many people.

“The charity is entirely parent and volunteer led and this donation will help enrich the lives of children and adults across the North East.”

The presentation took place at the Sir Bobby Robson Centre at Ushaw Moor, Durham.
