The first Mayor’s Monday is set to take place at Verandah Talk in August as Councillor Brian White kickstarts his new charity initiative.
The idea will see the Mayor visiting a different restaurant one Monday every month and raising money for various charities. Mr White is hoping the events will become popular enough to be held weekly.
He said: “We now have half a dozen charities lined up for these special Mayor’s Monday fundraisers and a number of top venues willing to host, establishments include VerandahTalk in Wolverton, The Betsey Wynne in Swanbourne, Nonna’s Italian in Woburn Sands, The Swan Inn in Milton Keynes Village, Jaipur in Central Milton Keynes and The Black Horse in Woburn.”
Taj Raja, owner of VerandahTalk, said “It is an honour to kick start the Mayor’s Monday project, we have lined up top musicians, authentic dishes and we are collecting lots amazing prizes for the evening’s raffle.”
In the week leading up to each event it will be highlighted on Twitter using the hashtag #mayorsmonday. To take part in Mayor’s Monday email firstname.lastname@example.org.
