Would not trust this benefit fraudster with a penny bubbly machine never mind a charity fundraiser. what's he doing teaching the kids how to screw the system. Only Blackburn would have him as Mayor disgrace what an embarrassment.

What if, being caught out has given him a chance to redeem himself, by working for the greater good of society, rather than abusing it?
He's already been rapped for using his position as mayor to highlight this charity and yet continues to do much for it.
Whilst he may have done wrong in the past, what he does now more than makes up for it, I think. Much as wrongdoers are being set to work tending the grave of a soldier, the mayor is raising funds to buy much needed equipment and should be given some credit for doing so.

Yeah that would be Jimmy Savilles defence too.
