Mayor's appeal raises thousands for charity


A charity appeal led by the Mayor of Douglas during her year in office  has raised more than £14,000.

The figure was revealed by Mayor Councillor Carol Malarkey at a reception in Douglas town hall when she presented each of her four chosen charities a cheque for £3,500.

The charities this year were Junior Achievement Isle of Man, Manx Workshop for the Disabled, Tabitha’s Trust and Victim Support.


A sum of £500 raised from the Deeply Dippy event in January was also presented to the RNLI whilst an ‘oompah’ night raised £450 for Douglas Town Band.

Councillor Malarkey said that with the support of the mayoress and the charity committee the 'fun' had been put back into fundraising.
