At our Christmas Carol Service a collection was taken in aid of the chosen charities of our Chairman, Councillor Stuart Smith.
This year the monies raised (£430) were to be donated to Friends of Saltburn, for the Christmas lights in Saltburn and Emmanuel Church, where the service was held.
At the January Council meeting, cheques were presented to Trevor Welburn, Friends of Saltburn, and Revd Adam Reed from Emmanuel Church.
Thank you to all those who attended the service and donated to the charities.
