Intellectual fundraisers to boost mayor's charities
INTELLECTUAL fundraisers are being held to raise money for charity.
Colchester mayor Colin Sykes has organised a series of three lectures and proceeds will go towards his charity fund to help six organisations.
The events will all be held at Firstsite with the first on October 10 being a lecture by Vicky Reaveley about the Guide Dog association. Vicky will be speaking from first hand experience as she is blind and has a guide dog.
The second lecture will be on November 7 and will be by Ilaria Boncori about her journey in life from being brought up in Italy, through her travels in China and Vietnam to her current role at the University of Essex.
The final lecture on January 23 will be by Rebecca Perry who is one of the leading lights in Colchester Zoo’s charity Action for the Wild.
Money raised from the talks will go to Mr Sykes’ six chosen causes.
Tickets cost £10 each and are available by calling the mayor’s office on 01206 282206 or emailing
