THE money raised during Councillor Lynn Berry's year as Mayor of Royston has been handed over to her two chosen charities.
A cheque for £2,058 was presented to Ian Wilson, chairman of the Friends of Meldreth Manor, on Monday
One for £3,058 was given to the Royston Day Centre at the Old Barn in King Street on Tuesday.
Cllr Berry said: "People were really generous during the year.
"There was a marvellous response to the charity events and this is seen in the donations that we have been able to present," she said.
Cllr Berry said earlier in her mayoral year that the choice of Meldreth Manor and the day centre represented both ends of the spectrum.
