Councillors help charity Christmas fair

Harroway councillors present the cheque

The Abel Foundation hosted a Christmas fair full of arts, crafts and gifts for visitors to browse and purchase recently.

The event, part-funded by Harroway ward members, successfully increased awareness of Mitochondrial Disease and helped to raise funds for the charity.

Councillor Carl Borg-Neal said “The event was a huge success and we were delighted to donate £1,000 towards the setup costs. There were so many unique, colourful gifts and treats to buy and the event was very well attended.”

The Abel Foundation provides information, knowledge and support to help both those living with Mitochondrial Disease and their families.

The charity is currently looking for volunteers to help with fundraising events and committee members/trustees to support the charity.

People with some spare time who wish to help the organisation are being asked to contact charity secretary Karen Hamilton at karen@theabelfoundation.org.uk for more information.
