We are delighted to announce that our staff recently spent some time in Dartford high street collecting funds for North West Kent Volunteer Centre who run various projects which make a difference to the lives of people living in Gravesham & Dartford.

We are proud to support North West Kent Volunteer Centre in 2017 who provide a wide range of voluntary support that includes befriending, transport and gardening services to older people.
 
As an organisation where our customers all live in the local community, being able to support a local cause is a central part of what we do.



The team headed down in the sun and had a great time. In total, they collected just under £70 from the generous people of Dartford which we know will go tawards a great cause.

Care Supervisor, Jessica, commented:
I was 'let out' of the office for both days to enjoy the sun and make my difference! I had a really absolutely fantastic time.

Although I have never done bucket collections before and was a little nervous, I was plesantly surprised by the generosity of the people in Dartford.


I think the work that the volunteer centre does is very valuable and they are a fantastic cause to support!

Care Assistant, Andra, who joined us in between her visits, explained:
What a great few hours we had! I had the perfect line as I approached people which was 'make my bucket happy' and it worked so well!

I think that most people I approached donated their spare change and even a note or two.

I am hoping to be involved in further fundraising activity over the coming months.
