It was a joyful evening as scores of people packed the Mayor’s Parlour on Friday 28 June as the new Mayor of Enfield, Cllr Christine Hamilton, launched her charity for her mayoral year 2017-2018. Her charity for this year will be called ‘Enfield Cares’.
It will be dedicated to supporting carers and recognising the invaluable role they play in helping the most vulnerable members of our community.
Cllr Hamilton said “Every single day, around the clock, thousands of people in Enfield are quietly fulfilling caring roles for a family member or a friend. They can be called on 24 hours a day, and many of them are unpaid, or have given up paid employment to care.
“My charity this year is dedicated to reaching out to all our carers, and the communities and organisations which support them. As well as raising money for local carers support groups I want to raise awareness of the invaluable role they play in supporting many of the most vulnerable in our communities.
“Carers contribute so much to people’s quality of life. It is right and proper that this mayoral year is spent giving them the appreciation they so richly deserve and to showing that Enfield cares about carers.”
