The Pink Ribbon Foundation is delighted to be one of the chosen charity’s to partner with the new Mayor of Hounslow

Councillor Sue Sampson, ward member for Isleworth, has been elected Mayor of Hounslow for the municipal year 2017/18, with Councillor Mukesh Malhotra, ward member for Hounslow Heath as the new Deputy Mayor.  The appointments were made at the annual meeting of the council at the end of May.

Speaking after her election to the office of Mayor for the next 12 months, Cllr Sampson said: “I am extremely honored to be elected Mayor of Hounslow and can’t wait to meet as many people as possible who make up all the wonderful communities we have here.  I am looking forward to visiting many places, and helping and supporting the causes and events that mean so much to all our residents.  It is a great privilege to serve as Mayor of Hounslow and I am committed to representing our vibrant borough and everything it stands for with pride”.

As Mayor of Hounslow, Cllr Sampson’s chosen charities for the year are the Pink Ribbon Foundation and Refuge, with both deserving causes benefitting from funds and awareness raised during the year ahead.

The Pink Ribbon Foundation is very excited for the partnership, its first with a Mayor, and has wasted no time in getting the new Mayor to throw herself into the role – quite literally!  On Monday 28 August 2017, the Mayor will be putting the ‘height’ into the height of summer, when she makes a sponsored 10,000 feet freefall parachute jump at Brackley Airfield, on behalf of the Foundation!

There are many planned events and activities for 2017/2018 and we will keep you posted …..
