The outgoing Chairman of Flintshire County Council, Councillor Glenys Diskin,
has presented her chosen charities with cheques totalling over £20,000.
Since being elected last May, she has supported the British Heart Foundation
and Prostate Cancer Research Centre.
Cllr Diskin presented representatives from both charities with cheques for
£10,000 each at County Hall in Mold, ending a very successful year as chairman,
during which time she has also undergone treatment for Non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
A cheque for £350 will also be given to the Friends of Flintshire Youth Music.
Cllr Diskin said:
I am so pleased and overwhelmed that we have managed to raise so much money
for three charities close to my heart. I would like to thank everyone for their
fantastic support during my year in office - I have had a wonderful year.
