A TOWN mayor has raised almost £500 by hosting an evening meal.
Councillor John Fisher, who is currently holding the civic role for Leek, held the fund-raising evening at Abdul Spice in Stockwell Street, Leek, last week.
A total of 53 people attended the Bangladeshi restaurant on Wednesday.
Mr Fisher said: “I held a similar fundraiser at Abdul Spice 13 years ago when I was previously Mayor, so it was natural to go back to Abdul for an evening for my present charities.
“We enjoyed a super meal and raised £473 for my charities at the same time.” He added: “I sincerely thank all who attended the evening for their generous support.”
