Mayor, Councillor Mike Rouse, hosted the event to raise funds for his charity, Pos+bility, a Cambridgeshire based charity that supports people living with long term neurological conditions.

Cllr Rouse said: “Thank you to everyone who supported the mayor’s dinner and entertainment.

“We raised a good sum for Pos+Ability and I hope everyone had a good time.

“Thanks to the Maltings, what a lovely venue it is and a great team down there, thanks to Js Catering for the meal and the Band of Hope for playing.

“My special thanks to the Mayoress, Cassie, for all her arrangements and to volunteer photographers Harry and Lauren, and particularly Julie Windle for capturing the Dad dancing routine, which will teach me not to leave my camera on the table.”

Pos+Ability has been the mayor’s charity for a year.

It is a Cambridgeshire-based charity offering chair-based exercise and one-to-one support to people living with long-term neurological conditions including, but not limited to Stroke, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis and Muscular Dystrophy.
