A cheque for just under £24,000 is to be presented on behalf of the Lord Mayor’s Charity Appeal Fund.

The former Lord Mayor, Councillor Nadine Fudge, will make the presentation on Wednesday 17 September at the Lord Mayor’s Parlour in Hull.

Missing People and the Echoes Foundation are the charities that will benefit from the latest round of fundraising.

The former works with young runaways, missing and unidentified people across the UK, while the latter supports families with disabled and additional needs children in Hull and East Yorkshire.

A sum of £23,968 was raised by Councillor Fudge and her Charity Appeal Committee during her year in office between 23 May 2013 and 26 June 2014. It will be shared between the two charities.

Hundreds of thousands of pounds has been raised for a wide range of causes since the inception of the Lord Mayor’s Charity Appeal Fund.
