The Mayor's Community Fund is a Registered Charity to which individuals, groups and other charitable organisations from within the Borough of Scarborough, can apply for financial help. The fund is run by the Mayor of the Borough of Scarborough, with assistance from the Mayors of Filey and Whitby.
For more information on the charity, please visit the Charity Commission website. The Borough of Scarborough Community Fund (registration number 509918)
When the Mayor of the Borough of Scarborough is elected by the Council they are given a 12 month tenure. In addition to fulfilling hundreds of engagements within the community, chairing council meeting etc. they are entrusted with managing and governing The Mayor's Community Fund. This is traditionally organised by the Mayoress or Mayor's Consort who builds a Committee consisting of members of the public, business representatives and other interested parties.
The Committee members raise funds throughout the Mayoral year through organising fund raising and receiving donations from individuals and businesses. The Mayor’s Annual Ball, organised with the assistance of Scarborough Rotary Club is the largest fund raising event during the year.
The Mayor’s Community fund has helped hundreds of local people over a number of years and is proud to have assisted in the support and development of our Borough.
