Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Cllr Roz Gladden, has chosen Liverpool Heartbeat as one of her charities of the year. The prestigious honor is shared with three other charities that work in the city supporting others.
Being chosen as one of the Lord Mayor’s charities will enable Liverpool Heartbeat to participate in a year long programme of events to raise funds, awareness of its work and help so many more young people through educational, physical and inspiring initiatives.
The Lord Mayor has served as a Liverpool City Councillor since 2003. She has been heavily involved in the adult social care and health portfolio and held a number of senior posts including Deputy Mayor and Cabinet member for adult social care and health. Liverpool Heartbeat promotes a healthy lifestyle agenda and more so, its founder, Robin Baynes, is Chairman of New Start, a social enterprise that delivers a diverse range of projects that are designed to help some of the most complex and disadvantaged groups across Merseyside.
Robin Baynes MBE, said, “We are delighted to be named Lord Mayor of Liverpool’s ‘Charity of the Year’. We are looking forward to working with the Lord Mayor, her charity committee and the Town Hall to ensure we embrace this opportunity to make the fundraising a huge success.”
