Former Mayor and Mayoress of Douglas Sara Hackman and Councillor Carol Malarkey are pictured at Douglas Town Hall with representatives from the three charities to benefit from the 2015-2016 mayoral charity appeal.

In her final engagement as Mayor, Mrs Hackman hosted a reception for representatives of the chosen charities, Junior Achievement Isle of Man, Manx Breast Care Unit Appeal and the RNLI, when she announced that each would receive a cheque for £4,500, but said a final total had not been calculated.

She praised the efforts of her charity committee which had devised a whole host of inspirational ways to raise money, from pamper evenings to African extravaganzas, Murder Mystery evenings to ‘oompah’ nights.

The appeal raised £15,000 in total and the three charities will now each receive an additional £500.
