The Civic Mayor of Tameside's Charity Appeal Fund 2022-23

During her year in office, the Civic Mayor of Tameside (Councillor Janet Cooper) will be supporting a small number of charities close to her heart including:


Greater Manchester Asbestos Victims Support Group

GMAVSG’s aim is an international ban on asbestos. In the meantime it seeks better funding for medical research and treatment of related conditions, fairer benefits and compensation, and the removal of asbestos from places where people work and live. The Civic Mayor is supporting this charity in memory of his wife, Maureen.

The Christie

The Christie Charity

The Christie Charitable Fund provides enhanced services over and above what the NHS is able to fund. Gifts from the public make a huge difference to the cancer care and treatment the Christie Hospital could normally provide for its patients and their families.

 ​Smallshaw Tenants and Residents Association
Smallshaw Tenants and Residents Association

STAR is a small group of volunteers working to bring the community together in Smallshaw. The accent is very much on activities for the young. Members run a weekly youth group and organise fun days in the school holidays. There are also entertainment nights for grown-ups and families.


The Anthony Seddon Fund

The Anthony Seddon Fund is a small mental health charity, passionate about helping local people who are living with mental illness and its effects. The charity aims to advance awareness and educate the general public, in particular children and young people, in all areas relating to mental health and well-being. The charity also wishes to improve the quality of life of people affected by mental health issues, their families, friends and carers, in Tameside and surrounding areas by promoting and protecting their physical and mental health through support, education, practical advice or financial assistance.
