The We Love Lichfield event at the George Hotel

More than £12,000 has been handed over to good causes across the region at a We Love Lichfield fund event.

Representatives from local voluntary groups gathered at The George Hotel today (17th June).. They were joined by civic guests for the presentation.

The total handed over by the fund has now passed the £290,000 mark.

Simon Price, patron of We Love Lichfield, said:

“Our aim is to give away £50,000 every year and with continued support and fundraising we will achieve this target.

“I’m most proud today telling guests of the fact we have been able to still raise money and distribute during Covid.

“People have come up to me today to thank the team for raising money.  It should be the other way around – We are merely helping others do the wonderful things they do.

“Thanks to everyone who contributes to We Love Lichfield including Lichfield District Council who via their Community Lottery donate a percentage to us, and to show its success we have received a cheque for £12,000 from them.”
