Didcot Mayor’s Charity

Published: 5th May 2021

We are absolutely thrilled and pleased beyond words to announce that the new Didcot Mayor elected last night, councillor Mocky Khan, has chosen us as his local Mayoral charity of the year.

Mocky will be supporting and fundraising for us, and increasing our awareness and profile, throughout the next year, getting involved and one of his which we are particularly excited about will be his Mayoral Ball next February. He will also be supporting Coeliac UK in his term of office.

As the first Asian Mayor for the town, Mocky says: “I am so proud and honoured to be Mayor of  Didcot. When it came to choosing my charities for the year, the local one had to be Play2Give. I admire the great work that Play2Give have done over the years. Andy and his team are are visible, help and support the community and raise much needed funds for those in need. I am looking forward to working with the Play2Give team, having fun, and raising as much money as we can so Play2Give can continue with their great work.”

We are very grateful for Mocky’s support in this way and we look forward to working with him over the coming year, and we cannot wait for the year ahead and what the plans have in store.

We are extremely honoured and excited in equal measure as we have never been a Mayoral charity before in our 14-year history and our full congratulations to Mocky.

It is a well deserved role and we know Mocky will be amazing in his term throughout the next twelve months, as we know from working closely with him on organising the annual Didcot Summer Fayre, which, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, was last held in August 2019.
