The mayor selects two charities each year

Following the election of Bromley’s new mayor last night (Wednesday), her two dedicated charities have been revealed.

Kathy Bance has been a councillor for Penge and Cator since 2010, and is currently the deputy Labour leader on the council.

On Wednesday night, she was chosen by her fellow councillors from all sides to take over from outgoing mayor Ian Payne for the year ahead.

The Labour councillor, who has been awarded an MBE for work in her local community, has now revealed that her two dedicated mayor’s charities will be Bromley and Croydon Women’s Aid and Bromley Homeless Shelter.

Bromley and Croydon Women’s Aid is focussed on supporting anyone, man or woman, suffering domestic abuse to make informed choices about their future.

The new mayor chose Bromley Homeless Shelter, after setting up Outreach for the Homeless project in the 1980s, which runs from Penge Congregational Church.
