The Mayor of Rushcliffe is taking part in a walking challenge to raise money for her three chosen charities.
Cllr Sue Mallender is walking the Rushcliffe border, a 100km circular route around the Borough to raise funds for Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust, Musicworks and Trent District Community First Responders.
The route comprises of six sections between 13 kilometres (8.4 miles) and 19 kilometres (12 miles), which can be viewed on the Rushcliffe website: https://bit.ly/3spAear which the Mayor is completing in her spare time.
Cllr Mallender met with representatives of each charity by the River Trent in Lady Bay to talk further about her challenge and the importance of her fundraising efforts.
Madam Mayor said: “I’ve so far completed the route through Thrumpton, the edge of Clifton, West Bridgford, Radcliffe on Trent and East Bridgford.
“It’s been brilliant so far seeing beautiful areas of the Borough I may not have had the chance to visit usually!
“It would be fabulous if residents could sponsor me for an amount per kilometre or donate on my behalf, as charities have really suffered throughout lockdown with most fundraising activities unable to take place.”
Residents wishing to make a donation can contact the Council by emailing Mayor@rushcliffe.gov.uk and to find out more about the charity’s work can visit www.nottinghamshirewildlife.org, www.musicworksnet.co.uk, and www.trentcfr.co.uk respectively.
