DUDLEY’S business community have boosted the Mayor of Dudley’s charity fund with a £700 donation.
The money was presented to councillor Melvyn Mottram at Grand Iftaar, the meal marking the end of fasting during Ramadan, which took place at Dudley Central Mosque.
Councillor Melvyn Mottram, Mayor of Dudley, said: “It was a great honour to be invited to the event, and I am enormously grateful to the businesses and the community for raising this money to help my chosen charities.
“It is important we all work together to give what we can to help these very worthwhile causes continue the excellent work they do.”
The event was also attended by people from a range of different faith communities, councillors, officers and members from Dudley Borough Interfaith Network.
The Mayor’s chosen charities this year are Diabetes UK – Stourbridge, Dudley and District Support Group and Dudley Stroke Association.
