Mayor’s Civic Dinner

An evening of food and fundraising was held on Friday 15th February at the Hallgarth Hotel and Country Club Darlington, for the Mayors’ Civic Dinner 2019.

The event was hosted by the Mayor, Councillor John Clark and was in support of his nominated charity for his year in office, the Great Aycliffe Cancer Support Group.

The Chair for the Group, Allison White, spoke to the guests describing the work that the group carries out and the various forms of help they give to their members.

Jon Bean, President of the Rotary Club of Newton Aycliffe, gave a response to the Mayor on behalf of the guests and Entertainment Heroes provided the music for the evening.

The Mayor would like to thank friends, family and Councillors for their support throughout the year.  He would also like to thank the following local businesses who kindly donated prizes for the raffle and tombola, special thanks to Roman Ltd for their donation of a patio furniture set and Husqvarna for their donation of a lawn mower which helped us to raise £559.00 on the night for this worthwhile cause:
