COUNCILLORS who interrupt one another at a full council meeting must make a donation to the Mayor of Barnsley’s chosen charity.
Coun Sarah Tattersall has chosen two local charities to support this year during her term as mayor.
These are Hey Let’s Talk, a mental health charity for children and young people, and Romero Communities which provides information, guidance and advice to support residents with personal welfare and financial issues.
