Last Friday saw Mufti the Monkey up to his old tricks as he was joined by Mayor Bruce Dowling to raise money for Xtrax young people’s centre.
They raced around as many primary schools in town as they could manage in one day in the Xtrax Mayor’s challenge. So far the duo have raised more than £700 for Xtrax with more money to come in later from other schools. Cllr Dowling said: “This is my first year as the new Mayor of Hastings racing around with Mufti and I loved every minute of it. I can’t think of a better way of raising money and awareness of this great charity Xtrax.” Andrew Batsford , Xtrax manager, said:“Mufti and I want to say a big thank you to Silverdale School, Christchurch, Sacred Heart, Sandown, Churchwood, St Mary Star of the Sea and West St Leonards Academy for being such amazing schools and giving the Mayor and Mufti an amazing welcome.”
