We pay tribute to our Mayor Luke Mackenzie, who sadly passed away. we had the pleasure and joy of getting to know him albeit briefly as his chosen charity for 2023/24, where we got to see his heart for the people of Basildon and how he supported the community with humility and passion. Our thoughts and prayers remain with his family and friends whose hearts have been broken by this unimaginable loss.
