When Councillor John Robinson died earlier this year, his colleagues agreed to continue to fund raise for his three chosen charities.

Councillor Robinson had already raised £1,044 for St Teresa’s Hospice, Richmondshire Community and Voluntary Action and St Mary’s Church Bell Fund.   The coffee morning on Thursday March 31 at Richmond Town Hall added £456.92 to the pot.

Organised by Councillor Stuart Parsons it was attended by the new chairman, Councillor Caroline Thornton-Berry who has vowed to continue to fund raise for the charities.
