Charity Dinner with Councillor Hunt, Chair of South Gloucestershire Council, where Next Link were named as one of her chosen charities.

The Chair’s fund was established in May 1998 as a focus for collecting funds for locally-based charities.  Each year the new Chair of Council chooses which charities he or she wishes to support.  Any donations received during that year are presented to the charities at the annual council meeting. This year’s Chair of Council, Cllr Rachael Hunt, has chosen domestic abuse charity Next Link and Freewheelers Blood Bikes as the charities she will be supporting to benefit.
