Councillor Sam Zair held his second official event as Mayor of Bishop Auckland at the Town Hall, the Mayoral Mayor at Home event on Monday 10th July 2023.
Councillor Zair was joined by the Deputy Lord Lieutenant, Dr. McManners, along with Mayor’s and colleagues from across the region as well as family, friends, and members of the public for a delightful afternoon and delicious afternoon tea, after a tour of the ‘Shattered’ exhibition by artist Stuart Langley in the gallery.
Cllr Zair is passionate about the people and businesses of Bishop Auckland and therefore invited a range of independent businesses including The House of Smudge and Pineapple Gallery to come along to showcase their wares at the event.
Councillor Zair said: “I was amazed at the number of people who attended from across the region. This was a perfect opportunity to show what Bishop Auckland has to offer. I was thrilled that the event raised £363 for my chosen charities which are Alzheimer’s UK and The Angel Trust, as this is a great start to my fundraising activities’.
I would also like to thank the Town Council Staff, Angel Trust Volunteers and the team at the Town Hall for their hard work to make the event such a success.”
This was the first fundraising event that the Mayor is planning, with a quiz night, Cheese and Wine event and Ball all being planned. Details will be available on the What’s On page of the Town Council website once event details are confirmed.
