Published 04 August 2015


The Vale of Glamorgan Youth Mayor has raised almost £100 for mental health charity Mind in the Vale at the Island Rocks weekender on Saturday 1 August 2015.


Youth Mayor Tom Chandler, Deputy Mayor Emily Peters, and members of the Youth Cabinet and the Vale Youth Forum put on some fundraising games on Barry Island promenade for members of the public to take part in.


In one day, the team raised a grand total of £93.69, which will be donated to Mind in the Vale.


Tom and Emily chose to support the local mental health charity as young people’s mental health has been a topic of discussion at Vale Youth Forum (VYF) meetings.


The Youth Mayor would like to thank the Vale of Glamorgan Council’s events team for their support on the day.
