The London Borough of Bromley’s new mayor, Kim Botting, has been speaking about her new role.
On being elected after the general election in May, she said: “This is a great borough and it is an immense privilege to represent it during my mayoral year.
“I hope to meet as many people as possible during this time and support our many wonderful charities, community groups and organisations in the work they do for the good of our community.
“This includes raising awareness for my chosen charities. The first is Connect, which helps people with aphasia, a disability affecting all ages caused by damage to the communication centre of the brain, usually by a stroke but also from a brain haemorrhage, head injury or tumour.
“The second is the National Brain Appeal. This is linked to Connect and is dedicated to raising essential funds for the National Hospital of Neurology and Neurosurgery in Queen Square, London.”
