We are delighted that the new Mayor of Cheltenham, Councillor Steve Harvey, has chosen the Friends of the Cheltenham Charity as the Mayor's Charity for the civic year 2021-2022.
The Friends of the Cheltenham Samaritans have worked hard for over 40 years, raising funds and the profile of Samaritans, to help the people of Cheltenham to have their amazing services maintained locally. We were therefore delighted to hear that Councillor Steve Harvey, the new Mayor of Cheltenham, has chosen to focus his fundraising efforts towards them this year.
Covid 19 does not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, gender, colour or sexual orientation. Neither do the Samaritans, so my choice of Mayors Charity for the Civic year 21-22 I hope reflects my personal views on inclusivity.
Councillor Steve Harvey, Mayor of Cheltenham
