Mayor of Runnymede

Mayor's charity

During her Mayoral Year, Cllr Saise-Marshall is delighted to announce that she will be supporting the following charities:

Addlestone Canoe Club

Addlestone Canoe club are a charity located on the Wey Navigation between Addlestone and New Haw. Their charitable objective is to support and encourage the youth of our community to safely access outdoor water-based activities. All their coaches and helpers are volunteers and they work with local youth organisations, community groups and families running affordable water-based sessions from the Spring through to the Autumn, providing sessions for approximately 1000 people per year.

They would like to upskill their coaches, make a bursary fund for Ukrainian children, create a young person’s sponsorship to compete in events and a hardship fund so they can really be accessible for all.

HeBrews Café

Hebrews café at St Paul’s Church in Addlestone is a PayAsYouFeel Coffee Shop on a mission. Their goal is to minimise the levels of wasted good food whilst providing free/affordable food to members of our local community. They are not just about helping to feed our residents, they are also providing a sense of connectedness and participation within our community.

They use the food they claim from donors during school holidays to run holiday projects, under the Loaves & Fishes banner, to ensure local school children have access to fresh nourishing food outside of term time.  Everyone is welcome in their coffee shop as Hebrews 13 v2 tells us ‘Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares’

Their kitchen is in need of updating and upgrading, new ovens and kitchenware are required, and they would also like to create a proper outdoor area with an awning, hedges and play area.

If you would like to make a donation to the Mayor’s Annual Charity we are very pleased to accept payments by bank transfer, cheque or card payment.  Please send an email to for further details.  Many thanks for your support.
