The Mayor, Councillor Nicholas Trimble has announced his Mayoral Charities as Lisburn Foodbank and Dundonald Foodbank.

The Mayor has chosen to support local foodbanks as the sad reality is that many are going to face increased financial hardship because of Covid-19 and the struggle to put food on our tables will become too great for some.  He believes it is deeply lamentable that we live in a world where foodbanks have to exist, but he is so thankful that they do.

The Mayor’s Office will be organising and hosting a wide range of fundraising events, in line with government guidance, for Lisburn Foodbank and Dundonald Foodbank.  He urges local residents and businesses to support these charities for any fundraising activity being organised in the local community. 

If you are interested in helping with fundraising for these two foodbanks or contributing to the Mayor’s Charity please contact the Mayor’s Secretary on T: 028 9244 7331 or email mayor’s.secretary@lisburncastlereagh.gov.uk
