The former chairman of Lichfield District Council has been presenting cheques to his chosen charities.

In his year in the role, councillor Joseph Powell helped to raise £2,632 for Young Carers Association (Lichfield branch) and Rocklands School.

The former chairman presented cheques of £1,316 to Mandy Rollins, Manager of Young Carers Project for Staffordshire, and Tony Dooley, headteacher at Rocklands School.

Cllr Powell said:

“My year as chairman was immensely enjoyable. I was honoured to represent the district council at the many events, openings and ceremonies. It was also a wonderful opportunity to raise money for my chosen charities. I would like to thank everyone who gave so generously and to everyone who supported me during my year in office, especially my wife Jean.”

Mr Dooley added:

“On behalf of all the teachers and pupils, I would like to thank Cllr Powell for his support. We will put the money towards developing sensory areas around the school.”
