The bike will be the main prize in a raffle for the Mayor’s Charity which pulls in donations and funds for good causes which will be presented at the end of the tenure of the current Mayor, Chesterfield Borough Councillor Stuart Brittain.

Raffle tickets will be sold at various events during the year to raise funds for the Mayor’s chosen charities including Ashgate Hospicecare’s sponsor-a-nurse fundraiser and for the Chesterfield Citizens Advice Bureau.
