Ceremonial Mayor’s Charity Appeal 2021/2022

At tonight’s game against Catalans Dragons at the The Salford Stadium, there will be charity bucket collections for a number of charities that the new Ceremonial Mayor, Councillor John Mullen, is supporting during his term of office. They are all Salford Charities and mean a lot to the people of Salford.

Raising funds during these difficult times will be a challenge, but the Mayor is determined to do his very best to raise as much for these well deserving charities as possible.

The Mayor is will be holding regular online raffles throughout the year, and details can be found on his Facebook page ‘Salford Ceremonial Mayor’.

You can also donate directly to the appeal by visiting his page on the Salford Council website Ceremonial Mayor’s Charity Appeal • Salford City Council .  If you prefer, cheques made out to ‘Salford Ceremonial’ can be sent to: The Ceremonial Mayors Charity Appeal, Member Services, Salford City Council, Salford Civic Centre, Chorley Road, Swinton, Salford, M27 5AW, or email mayoralty@salford.gov.uk for more details on how to donate.

The Mayor would also welcome any support from local businesses who may be able to donate goods for use as raffle prizes etc, again please contact mayoralty@salford.gov.uk and a pick up can be arranged.

Once restrictions are relaxed the Mayor looks forward to getting out to promote the charity appeal, and to meet as many community groups, volunteers, frontline and other workers that have helped us through these difficult times.

The Andrew Cooke Music Award Trust and Memorial Fund

This charity helps all children across the city to afford to buy and afford tutoring of a musical instrument. Music has been proven to help children socially, build confidence, teaches discipline, and helps them to express themselves. Most importantly learning to play a musical instrument gives children enjoyment and the opportunity of learning a new skill.

The Salfordian
Situated in Southport and built by Salford Council in 1963 to provide a refuge for residents and their carers, with 24-hour on call support. Today, the hotel is run by the Salfordian Trust and caters mainly for older Salford residents and less mobile visitors but they also welcome other guests. The Salfordian helps those people by giving them the opportunity for much needed respite and a chance to enjoy a popular holiday destination knowing that their care needs will always be catered for.

Salford by the Sea

Situated on the main coast road between Prestatyn & Rhyl, The Salford Children’s Holiday Camp was established in 1926, left by bequest, to the children of Salford.

Since then it has provided a holiday home to over 80,000 Salford children from all walks of life! Its purpose has always been to provide affordable holidays to Salford children.  Formany disadvantaged children, their holiday at the camp was often the first and only time they saw the sea, earning its nicknames ‘Salford by the Sea’ and ‘The Jam Butty Camp.’
