I did a perfunctory search about this Stitcher. I could not find anything on the Ground Zero web site. What I did find out was that a former Lord Mayor, did visit NYC with some donation (and other things I guess) as you will read. He has now retired it says but maybe a contact with him might shed light on what happened to your gift.Hello Alan, I did have a chat with someone at the council house and they said it was up to New York to let me know they had received it. I also had a chat with a fireman at the station opposite the old Bournbrook pub but he could not find out anything either.
Birmingham City Council has honoured former Sutton Coldfield and Birmingham councillor Jim Whorwood for his contributions to the community over a political career spanning five decades. The former Lord Mayor of Birmingham was made an Honorary Alderman of the City at the recent annual meeting of the Council. As Lord Mayor in 2001-2002 he represented Birmingham on a visit to New York following the September 11 attacks to hand over donations raised by Brummies. Mr Whorwood said: "I visited the site of the Twin Towers in New York to express condolences, in particular to the relatives and colleagues of the fire brigades and police - a memorable but very harrowing experience."
