New mayor to host first fundraising event

The newly appointed Mayor of Erewash, Cllr Jennifer Hulls, will host her first charity event this weekend.

Tickets are now available for the exclusive guided tour of the Arboretum at Long Eaton’s Trent College which takes place on Saturday May 19 between 2pm and 4pm.

During her year in office, the Mayor will be raising funds for the Mercian Regiment Benevolent Fund, Action for Children and for a ‘charity pot’ for charities within the Borough.

She said: “I am looking forward to launching my year of fundraising with what will be a delightful and fascinating afternoon. The guided tour is a great opportunity to enjoy the tree collection within the grounds of Trent College and I hope as many people as possible join me.”

Tickets, which are £5 each are available by calling 0115 9071115.
