The outgoing Lord Mayor of Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council has finished his term of office on June 6 with presentations to three different charities totalling £14,000.
Alderman Glenn Barr, of the Ulster Unionist Party, on stepping down from the post, raised £5000 for Guide Dogs NI, who assist people suffering from sight loss, £5000 for Angel Wishes, who support children in Northern Ireland with cancer-related conditions and £4000 for Royal British Legion Industries. RBLI is a separate charity from the Royal British Legion, with the distinct focus on service delivery.
Alderman Barr began his tenure as Lord Mayor of ABC in June 2021.
Following the Annual Meeting of ABC on Monday night, it was announced that the DUP would take over the office, as Councillor Paul Greenfield was appointed to the post.
