Will the two recipients of the charity funding receive 50% each, or if not, at what ratio will it be divided?

Riddler...... can I suggest that a few users of The Post pose those questions to.........

Ms G Alexander.....   gill.alexander@hartlepool.gov.uk   

Mr P Devlin.....  Peter.Devlin@hartlepool.gov.uk

The Ceremonial Mayor Cllr P Beck.....  paul.beck@hartlepool.gov.uk

The more people who take the time to ask our leaders questions, the broader the answer base becomes..... you know, as do most of The Posts users, that getting answers to the publics questions is getting more and more difficult,..... the less answers they give, the more people realise that things aren't as they should be with the towns council.

As steveL mentioned......

After SAB finally finished his stint as Mayor, HBC refused to publish an itemised list of events and what was raised as a result of those events; neither would they publish a list of donating organisations or individuals with associated amounts donated. In short, there's no way of knowing that all of the money raised actually ended up in the coffers of the nominated charities; obviously, some did, but did all of it?

We'll never know.

I dare say that it's a truism that the most deserving charities are the ones you hear least about.

If and I say 'If'..... HBC have anything to do with banking and keeping the Mayors charity appeals bank account, they are using council employees to do it, the employees are paid via the public purse, ergo that information should be available to the public ?........ or am I expecting to much of the people we pay to manage the affairs of 'Our Council' ?

Would HBC / Mayor need to keep HMRC appraised of the charitable donations received and donated...... any accountants or finance savvy Post users have any thoughts.?

I also seem to remember the boast of £40,000 in total for SABS Mayoral charity tenure ?

There are many things that go on within our local authority in all sorts of areas that are unavailable to the council tax payers of the town...... is that as it should be ?

The Rifty Youth Project............ ...Tuesday and Friday 17:00 to 19.00

Youth Project - providing youth and community activities......... ...Suitable for children and young people aged 7 to 18 years.

4 hours a week.... mmmmmm a whole 4 hours......

I wonder will The Mayor a.k.a. Big Fibber Beck, provide the itemised accounts of his 'Charitable Donations' for public scrutiny and as important, in fact possibly more importantly, will the 'Donor Organisations' provide there itemised accounts for public scrutiny ?

Didn't Cook claim that the Mayoral charity efforts were themselves a registered charity on one of its event tickets and when the charity number number was checked it turned out to be Hartlepool Roundtable

Good point.

“We will be organising events to raise funds for my chosen charities which are the Rifty Youth Project and Macmillan Cancer Support - your kindness in supporting us will be extremely appreciated.” Ceremonial Mayor Paul Beck

. . . and another own goal for 2015's 'Liar of Year Award'. The Rifty Youth Project is NOT a registered charity but it is close to SAB's heart which, presumably, is why the sycophantic Beck chose it in the first place. Then again, if it isn't a registered charity; then what the hell is it? Surely someone is keeping some sort of accounts otherwise it might look as if people are being asked to donate to some questionable cause without anyone having any way of knowing how the money was being used........and that could never happen in Hartlepool, could it?
