The Mayor, Councillor Scott Carson has announced his Mayoral charities as:

Mayor Carson commented: "In my term as Mayor, I want to support the people of Lisburn & Castlereagh as they continue to help each other. The Atlas Centre and Helping Hand Charities are committed to this same goal so I am proud to support them as my Mayoral Charities this year. They are there for us all in times of need. Their help and expertise has been critical for families and I have personal experience of this.

“I hope to raise awareness and money for these two amazing charities so that other families and people in our local community can get the required support in their time of need.”

The Mayor would welcome as much support as possible from the community to help fundraise and raise awareness. Whether that’s by volunteering, organising an event or donating to the Mayor’s Charities.
