Photos of the West Lancashire Mayoress Charities Fundraiser The Hopvine in Burscough Feb 21st 2012

West Lancashire Mayoress Charities Fundraiser at The Hopvine Pub and Restaurant in Burscough Monday 21st February 2012.

Mike and Julie McCombe the proprietors of The Hopvine generously sponsored this fundraising meal for the West Lancashire Mayoress' charities.

Diners bought tickets to support the event to help raise money for the West Lancs Women's Refuge and Community Heartbeart charities.

In addition to enjoying a wonderful meal, the guests raised additional money from the proceeds of a prize raffle.  I hope Little Ted and his friends will be happy in their new homes.

I hear that Burscough village is very close to securing enough money to buy its own defibrillator.  An Emergency response by Fire and Ambulance services can take longer in rurual areas.  A defibrillator close to hand in the village centre could be used to save a life of a resident suffering a cardiac arrest.  When Burscough gets its' own defibrillator, this will be due, in no small part, to the support by the Mayoress' of the Community Heartbeat charity.  However, some additional fundraising is still needed.

How to invite the Mayor to an event: If you're interested in inviting the Mayor or Deputy Mayor to attend an official event, you have any fundraising ideas or would like to make a donation to the charities, then please contact Ann England in the Mayor's Office on 01695 585033 or email
