Councillor Anthony Munday has handed over more than £20,000 to the three charities he supported during his year as Lord Mayor of Stoke-on-Trent.
Three causes have each received £7,400, the North Staffs Heart Committee, the Sir Stanley Matthews Coaching Foundation and the Lou Macari Foundation.
Councillor Munday finished his civic year in office in May after completing a number of punishing fundraising challenges as Lord Mayor, including a coast-to-coast bike ride, a 25-mile sponsored walk taking in green spaces across Stoke-on-Trent, and a hickory golf tournament.
He is now the council’s cabinet member for greener city, development and leisure.
The 57-year-old said: “I’m delighted to be able to present these cheques to good causes that are close to my heart and do wonderful things in the city for local people. So many people gave their time and money in supporting my fundraising, and I’d like to thank everyone for their generosity.”
