I never really understood what mayors did.
That was until I saw Anita Clayton in action at our Fire Fit challenge (a 2.5 hour egg and spoon fundraising egg-stravaganza see the next post) .
She opened the event up, took part, cheered participants on for over two and a half hours and then gave out certificates. With her support 37 people and and one dog took part. They covered over 45 miles and raised over £200 with another £200 pledged. All of the money will go towards our With It Group (our over 50’s group).
Lots of politicians pop in for the photo opportunity and then pop out shortly afterwards. Anita was there from start to finish and was a veritable human dynamo. Her positive attitude, genuine interest and encouragement really made a huge difference. She even insisted on giving Claude the dog a certificate of participation … it’s the little details don’t you think?.
Thanks for your support Anita.
I understand what a good mayor does now.
