Cllr Balsevics also sent an email to say he would like to donate £500 from his civic allowance to provide further support to his charities,

A Wisbech Town Council spokesperson said: “Simon explained the decision to support the mayor’s charities because he is strongly in favour of young people having access to team sports and ways to get fit, feelings shared by the mayor whose own children take part in a variety of fitness activities and team sports.”
