The Mayor’s Charity Appeal for 2023-2024 is dedicated to providing crucial support to veterans, ex-service people, cadets, and young individuals transitioning into employment. Cllr Roy Berg, reflecting on his 34-year tenure in the Royal Air Force, expressed his commitment to ensuring supporting these causes - “I served in the Royal Air Force for 34 years and therefore it will come as no surprise that I want to ensure my fundraising activities for this year support veterans, ex-service people and their partners and families. Having witnessed what my own family went through and the sacrifices they made whilst I was serving, I want to ensure those connected to the armed forces in Waltham Forest, have support, a sense of community and have a space for their voices to be heard.


Digital learner and Student Union Representative, Kwasi Owusu-Mensah said: “It’s very thoughtful of the Mayor to support these causes and I am inspired to continue to help support others in need not just today, but further explore my involvement.”
