Wisbech Mayor

Wisbech Mayor distributes his fundrasing to local Community Causes

The 2020-21 Mayor of Wisbech Councillor Aigars Balsevics has begun distributing the results of his fundraising efforts to worthwhile causes to benefit children and the local community.

To raise the funds, Councillor Balsevics held an afternoon tea at Wisbech Castle, inviting civic mayors and mayoresses across the East Anglia region, with their consorts. This raised £420. He received generous donations from Knowles Transport, Bretts Transport, Elgoods Brewery and Madhouse UK to boost the fundraising total. Councillor Balsevics put donation pots in the three pubs he runs, raising £65. He also held a series of Food on the Market Place events, where the mayor and his deputy joined top local chef Alison Sloan to cook dishes using ingredients sourced from Wisbech Market traders.
