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.
Cllr Ernest Ezeajughi, Stonebridge ward said: “It is a pleasure to be here today presenting cheques to two charities that are very close to my heart, and even more so after all the challenges of the last 18 months. I know this money will help both charities continue their important work and I look forward to seeing its impact.
“I would also like to thank the Jason Roberts Foundation and the Sickle Cell Society, for both of their support in hosting and promoting these fundraising events during my mayoral term.”
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.”
“Being one of the chosen charities has increased the profile of the organisation and allowed us to have a deeper impact in the community through our growing projects. It was also great to work with the Sickle Cell Society over the past two years. The monies raised will allow JRF to increase our participation, widen our outreach and build the organisation as part of our sustainability model.”
