Ball raises £900 for Framework

MANSFIELD’S Framework branch has been presented with a £900 cheque from funds raised at the Chairman and Mayor’s Annual Charity Ball.

Outgoing Mansfield District Council chairman Sally Higgins and the council’s managing director Ruth Marlow presented the cheque for £902.55 to Michelle Hanson, service manager at Framework’s Sherwood Street centre.

The money was raised at the Chairman and Mayor’s Annual Charity Ball held on 23rd March at the Civic Centre.

The money will go towards the Framework Mansfield’s Appeal to raise £30,000 to support more residents of Sherwood Street.

The aim is to create a new job to support the needs of an increased number of people requiring the homeless service, in order to sustain a more balanced outlook for their futures.

Framework have already worked hard in raising £20,000 towards their goal.
