17/5/18 About 1 minute
As one of his final duties in office as Mayor of Chelmsford, Councillor Duncan Lumley presented each of his chosen charities - Age Concern Chelmsford, City of Chelmsford Mencap and Friends of Columbus School - with a cheque for £15,163.95.

At a small reception in the Mayor's Parlour at the Civic Centre yesterday (Wednesday 16 May), representatives of the Mayor's chosen charities were delighted to accept the cheque and thanked the Mayor and Mayoress, and the Deputy Mayor and the Deputy Mayoress, for all their hard work and contributions.

During their civic year, they held many fundraising events and activities which helped towards raising the money, all run with the help of a supportive committee. As Mayor, Councillor Lumley has attended and spoken at many functions: some formal, some relating directly to council business, but the majority acting as a focal point for life in Chelmsford. Each provided him with an insight into daily life in the city, including its centre, surrounding villages and South Woodham Ferrers.

During the cheque presentation, Councillor Duncan Lumley said: "It has been a great honour to be Mayor of Chelmsford for a second term and to once again represent so many thousands of residents. We take away some wonderful memories and we wish the next Mayor an equally enjoyable year. We are sure they will have a satisfying, worthwhile and happy twelve months."
