The Mayors Charity Appeal is a registered charity which is set up to help support the Mayor’s chosen charity each year.
The Mayor for 2016/2017 is Councillor Ron Conway, who has chosen to raise money for Wigan and Leigh Hospice during his time in office.
Speaking about his decision, Cllr Conway said, "I chose this charity because of the remarkable work they do in serving people from all over the borough, caring for patients, either in their own home or in the Hospice, with dignity and compassion."
Dr Alan Baron, Chief Executive, Wigan & Leigh Hospice said, "As a registered charity, we are funded mainly through the donations and support of local people and businesses. We are enormously grateful to the Mayor for supporting us and would like to wish him every success for his mayoral year."
Wigan and Leigh Hospice provides specialist care, for those who are at the end of their life to over 1,200 people every year.
