The chosen charities of the retiring Mayor Cllr Miss Sue Mills were the North Devon Hospice and the Great Torrington Army Cadets.  They are charities close to her heart and she has worked closely with them both during the year.  They were each presented with a cheque at the Annual Meeting on Tuesday 15th May 2018 from her funds raised at various events she has held during the year:-

North Devon Hospice -  Ali Hunt from the hospice was presented with the cheque

Great Torrington Army Cadets: Cpl Tyler Bolt was presented with the cheque on behalf of Great Torrington Army Cadets


Please see below letter of thanks received from the Great Torrington Army Cadets:-

"Dear Councillor Sue Mills,  

I am writing to thank you for selecting Great Torrington Army Cadet Force as one of your Mayor's Charities for the previous Mayoral Year. The cheque which you presented to us will be spent wisely to benefit the current and next generation of cadets in Great Torrington. This was thoroughly appreciated and I want you to know that we are grateful.  

Thanks to your kind gesture we will now be able to purchase some new radios to assist with carrying our training exercises and Cadet in the Community activities such as Mayfair and the 2020 Bonfire. This will benefit the Cadets because it will allow the Instructors to deliver a higher standard of training and enable the older Cadets to learn their new skills on radio communications, so that they can pass these it onto the younger cadets at the Detachment. 

The remaining amount of money will be used to purchase training aids to benefit the Detachment training aids so we can deliver the "Cadet experience" that we are trying to offer at Great Torrington Detachment. Both the staff and the cadets were delighted with the amount of money you've managed to raise.  

Finally I hoped you enjoyed the Mayor Making Ceremony and  your now well deserved break after doing a fantastic job over the past 12 months as Mayor of Great Torrington. I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all the best for the future and I look forward to continuing to work with you in your role as the President of the Royal British Legion. Also I would like to wish Diana Davey and Keeley Allin all the best for the next 12 months in their new roles as Mayor and Deputy Mayor of Great Torrington.   

Finally please can you pass this letter onto all of your Town Councillors. 

Yours sincerely 

LT. Matthew Sanders BA (Hons) Cert. Ed MTA"
