FORMER MAYOR of Brent Cllr Ernest Ezeajughi has presented over £50,000 to local charities the Sickle Cell Society and Jason Roberts Foundation. The funds were raised over his 2019-2021 Mayoral term and handed over to the two chosen charities at a recent event at Bridgestone Arena in Stonebridge, north west London.
Both organisations say the money will help fuel their vital work in Brent and beyond.
The Jason Roberts Foundation works to change outcomes for the most marginalised in the United Kingdom, empowering communities through local grassroots projects.
Otis Roberts, CEO of the Jason Roberts Foundation, said: “On behalf of Jason, the trustees, the CEO, staff and volunteers we are extremely proud to have been chosen as the Mayor’s charity. We would like to thank the former Mayor Ernest, the Leader and the Councillors that have supported us in our journey in this wonderful borough.”
