The Mayor of Maghull thanked everyone who supported her in her role which has seen her raise nearly £10,000 for Woodlands Hospice.

Speaking at Maghull Town Council's AGM, Mayor Cllr Joan Deegan said she was immensely proud to have raised so much for such a worthy cause.

Cllr Deegan chose Woodlands Hospice as the Mayor of Maghull's Charity because she said they do invaluable work supporting people here in Maghull.

Cllr Deegan said: "Everyone knows what good work Woodlands does. They help people from here in Maghull and throughout the region at a time when they need help the most.

"I have made numerous visits there in my time as Mayor and I am always impressed by the work they do. It really is inspiring.

"It is a charity that deserves our support so they can continue to do the great work they do for the people who are ill and for their families too."

In a letter of thanks, Woodlands chief executive Rose Milnes said the Mayor of Maghull had become part of the Woodlands family.

"The fundraising team advises me that, in total, over the two years as Mayor of Maghull, you and your community have raised a fabulous total of £9,965 for Woodlands Hospice.

"This is a wonderful achievement and we are so pleased that you have been able to witness, first-hand, how the hard work you and your supporters have put into fundraising means so much to our patients and their families.

"On behalf of Woodland staff, our patients and families, thank you so much for your commitment, support and ongoing interest in the hospice."

Cllr Deegan thanked everyone who has supported the Mayor's Charity.

Cllr Deegan said: "The support I have had as Mayor and the support my chosen charity has received from people throughout our community has been phenomenal. 

"From the people who supported our community events where money was raised for Woodlands to the people who simply made donations, they all deserve our thanks.

"I would like to thank the council staff, and in particular Pat, who has been a constant source of support and advice to me in my time as Mayor.

"I would also like to thank my husband and Consort Rod who hasn't ever let me down - except maybe for one time when an engagement clashed with an Everton match - but I'll let him off for that, particularly as Everton lost.

"I am honoured to be Maghull Town Council's, and our town's, representative at engagements here in Maghull and across the region.

“I hope to build on this year's success in the coming year and I look forward to working closely with Deputy Mayor Cllr Denise Mullen as she prepares to take the chain of office on next year." 

Mayor of Maghull Cllr Joan Deegan and consort Cllr Rod Deegan add a golden leaf to Woodland's Hospice fundraising tree after raising nearly £10,000 for the charity.
