In his year as Chairman for Lichfield District Council, Councillor Bernard Derrick helped to raise £2,049 for charity.
The former chairman was on hand in the Council Chamber to present cheques of £1,024 to St Giles Hospice and the Pathway Project.
Councillor Bernard Derrick, Chairman of Lichfield District Council from May 2011 to May 2012, said: “It was my pleasure in my role as chairman to help raise money for charity. I only wish it could have been more.
“I chose St Giles Hospice and the Pathway Project because they hold a special place in my heart and work so hard to support the people of Lichfield District when they are facing difficult times in their lives.
“Thank you to everyone who supported me in my year as Chairman and to everyone who gave so generously to my chosen charities.”
