The Mayor’s nominated charities for the current year are: The Meath, Skillway and the Trinity Trust Team.

The Mayor endeavours to hold several fundraising events through his/her mayoral year. 

Due to COVID-19, no physical fundraising events are being held until further notice.


Cllr Penny Rivers, Town Mayor of Godalming is kindly supporting The Meath Christmas ‘Sustain & Maintain Appeal’ by joining in The Meath’s Community Christmas Jumper mufti day on Friday, 11 December (National Christmas Jumper Day!) and inviting other Councillors to join in.

Helen Jackson, Marketing Manager at The Meath commented “We are really pleased that the Mayor is kindly lending her support to our Christmas appeal. Fundraising has been so hard during 2020 and we are delighted that the Mayor is inviting other Councillors in joining herself and local schools and businesses in our community wide Christmas Jumper Mufti Day in support of The Meath. As well as raising vital funds we hope that we also raise awareness and lots of much needed festive cheer!”

Christmas Jumper Day 2020 - The Meath, GodalmingThe Meath is a specialist care home in Godalming which supports adults who live with complex epilepsy and disabilities. This year The Meath Epilepsy Charity has been unable to bring in their usual, vital, fundraised income from events and have been met with unexpected costs posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition to specialist residential care, they offer the people they support a broad range of daily, life enhancing activity sessions at their Skills Centre and their Social Enterprise, Changing Perceptions on Godalming High Street. Every day the people who are supported by The Meath benefit from a sense of achievement, purpose and belonging by taking part in these sessions.

The Meath’s funding covers only the basic requirements of life and does not stretch to the cost of activity sessions or social events. If you’d like to help The Meath to sustain and maintain the life enriching services  on offer, you can donate to their Christmas 2020 Appeal via The Meath’s website and in so doing, you’ll be helping us to ensure that the incredible people who are supported by The Meath can keep smiling throughout 2021. Thank you.
