THE MAYOR of Bracknell Town has announced her charity of the year for 2018/19.

Cllr Sandra Ingham has chosen to support South Hill Park's programme of youth outreach, the 11/17 Youth Club, MOLE (Missed out Learning Experience), and Wilde About Arts.

The Mayor visited the club to meet the youngsters and to take a look at one of their sessions, a workshop in the theatrical art form of Commedia Dell'Arte by Callum McDonald.

Cllr Ingham said: "During my year as Bracknell Town Mayor I have chosen to raise funds for South Hill Park’s learning and participation programmes for youth because I believe that youth engagement produces positive outcomes both for the young people involved and for the local community. These programmes are not profit-making and rely upon charitable donations to continue to flourish."
