Store director at Specsavers Sevenoaks Maxine Chakowa has finished off her year as Mayor of Sevenoaks in style, thanks to raising a phenomenal amount of money for Breast Cancer Care.

Fantastic total

The charity, chosen by Maxine at the beginning of her year in office, stands to benefit by a grand total of £35,000.

Breast Cancer Care is the only UK wide charity which provides information, support and care to people who have been affected by the disease.

A word from Maxine

Maxine said: ‘I have had an amazing year in office, with switching on the Christmas lights being one of my highlights.

‘But by far the best bit of my year has been being able to raise so much money for Breast Cancer Care. The work that they do makes such a difference to so many people, and I am pleased to have been able to support them.’
