Chairman's Announcements


The Chair encouraged everyone to visit the Climate Change expo being held in the Durham Room, which was showcasing various services and technologies from across the region that were tackling climate change.


The Chair drew Members attention to the Pennies from Heaven scheme which allowed Councillors and staff to donate to charity via payroll deductions.  Under the scheme monthly allowances were rounded down to the nearest pound with the pennies donated to the Chair’s chosen charity, which this year was Age UK County Durham.  Gift Aid was automatically added to donations which meant the charity could claim an extra 25p from the Government for every £1 donated, at no cost to the donor or employer.
