Supper events to support the Deane Dragons

January 16, 2015

Somerset Community Foundation Deputy Chief Executive Mary Hancock recently attended a charity supper event, one of two held in late 2014, at the Natraj Indian restaurant in Taunton. The events were organised by Taunton Deane Mayor Dave Durdan and Kevin Smith, Relationship Director at Santander, to raise funds for the Mayors charity project The Deane Dragons, part of the Taunton Mayors Fund. The Mayors Fund helps Somerset Community Foundation support grassroots groups working to change peoples lives in the Taunton area.

Over the two events, £2,925 was raised, which was generously match funded by Santander to bring the overall total to £5,850. Kevin said We were delighted that both evenings sold out, and on behalf of Santander I want to thank everyone that attended, both friends of the Mayor and local business people.


Mayor Durdan said “I want to extend my sincere thanks to Kevin and his team at Santander for match funding the Mayors charity which is helping the community of Taunton Deane. I also want to thank Morrison’s in Taunton for donating the wonderful raffle prizes.”

The next supper will be held on 11th February, so if you are interested in attending please contact the Mayors office for more details 01823 356 391 or email
