Message from the Mayor
We were most grateful for GWOS’s “Pirates in a Day” which raised £1,600 for our Mayoral charities in 2013.
Maggs and St Pauls eventually benefited from over £14,000 each towards their roles in assisting the single homeless, through the provision of a day centre, a hostel and support, to assist people to live independently in their own accommodation.
