Huge congratulations to all the worthy organisations and charities who were chosen as recipients of the 2022 Grant Aid Award.
The successful applicants were presented with their cheques at the Town Council's Civic Reception, at Butlins on Wednesday 6th April 2022.
It is hoped that these monies will help the recipients to continue to improve the range of services and activities available in Bognor Regis, which ultimately benefits our visiting tourists, and most importantly, our residents.
Former Town Mayor, Cllr Steve Goodheart and his Mayoress, Mrs Andrea Goodheart hosted the evening, with dignitaries present including the High Sheriff of West Sussex, Mr Neil Hart, the Vice-Chairman of West Sussex County Council, the Chairman of Arun District Council, amongst many other local Mayor’s and Chairmen, Bognor Regis Town Councillors, the Mayor’s Cadet and Bognor Regis Town Crier, Mrs Jane Smith.
As well as handing out the Grant Aid cheques, the Mayor presented his Mayor’s Good Citizen Award to Danny Dawes, of Grandad’s Front Room, for his immense service to the Town and the Young Citizen’s Award 2022 was awarded to Danny’s son, Czarli Tyrolczyk-Dawes, for his work as a young carer and to the community.
Featuring a raffle to raise funds for the Mayor’s chosen charities; Rox Music & Arts Charity and HFT, as well as a musical interlude from The Regis Jazz Band, the evening was extremely enjoyable.
Congratulations again to all the winners.
