Mayor’s Acceptance Speech
‘Firstly I would like to thank Councillor Rahman for the excellent work he has done throughout his year in office, he has been a dedicated and hardworking Mayor for the Borough and has done a great job in supporting his chosen charities – thank you Mohammed.
I am delighted and honoured to be elect3ed as Mayor for 2019/2020 and look forward to the many opportunities to work with the community it will bring.
As Mayor of Corby I will also be raising money for a very worthwhile local charity – Lakelands Hospice.
Lakelands Hospice is an independent charity committed to delivering the best possible practice and development of specialist palliative care for people with cancer, heart failure and other life-limiting illnesses.
They honour people’s right to dignity and respect during all stages of their illness by providing the quality of life of all hospice attendees and their families.
I hope that all Councillors will help support me wherever possible.
To help me along my way throughout the year I nominate my wife Toni as my Mayoress and invest her with the chains.’
