Mocky Khan raises £2,357 as Mayor of Didcot
A big thank you to councillor Mocky Khan who helped our charity enormously during his term as Mayor.
For 12 months until this May, Mocky was the Didcot Mayor and during his term he chose two charities to support raising money and awareness – and we was delighted to be his local chosen charity alongside Coeliac UK.
Throughout his year Mocky’s aim in fundraising was all about fun, fun, fun and his year of events was certainly that!
In his year Mocky raised an incredible £4,715.22 with a split of £2357.61 to both his charities – and this amount helped our charity hugely so that we could continue our good work in changing, transforming and saving lives across Oxfordshire and helping our numerous children, health and disability related causes.
During his year’s term as Mayor, two coffee mornings, the first ever town Santa run, the first ever Didcot Barn Dance and his Mayoral Red themed Ball was all held – and all brought enormous spirit and fun to all.
During his year Mocky also dedicated a day out of his busy duties last December as Andy’s elf to help deliver gifts to Oxford Children’s Hospital, SSNAP and Helen & Douglas House – as part of our Sleigh2Give Christmas Appeal.
As mayor until May, Mocky also joined in some of our events including donning his Ironman costume to take part in our first ever Superheroes themed colour run, attended our third gala Hollywood themed Ball, put his best thinking cap on to join in a rock n roll music bingo and a fish and chips quiz supper, and, even after his year ended, in July even he competed in our football tournament as part of our P2G Heroes team.
In March, as Mayor Mocky hosted the annual Didcot Town Council Awards, an evening of celebrating all the great and good of the town, and honoured us as one of their Community Champions, and also recognised Andy with a Special Recognition Award, in recognition of twenty years of fundraising, which was presented by our local MP and patron David Johnston MP.
Mocky presented his grand cheque for £2357 – to Andy at our sold out Christmas & 15th Birthday Party at the end of November which saw a record £551 raised, through the profits of ticket sales and raffle.
We would like to say an enormous thank you and well done to Mocky. It was great to see you had a successful year despite the rise in Covid-19 earlier this year forcing some cancellations and postponements in your events, and we loved working with you. What a year it was – and what a dynamic duo Mocky and Andy was.
Since Mocky’s year came to end, and despite being leader of the town council, Mocky has also become one of our Trustees.
We salute you Mocky, we think you are a P2GHero and we continue to wish Mocky’s predecessor Pam Siggers as current Mayor the very best in her term.
