Purpose: The Mayor of Sefton's Charity Fund is a trust that was set up to assist the people of Sefton. It helps many of the smaller charitable and voluntary groups that do not have a national profile and sometimes find fundraising rather difficult because they are not well known outside the local area in which they operate. The fund is split into five charity committees - Bootle, Crosby, Formby, Parishes and Southport. It also provides funding generally across these boundaries.
