On February 2nd 2019, after months of hard work and hours spent collecting items, PA to a Folkestone Headway client and supporter of our charity Zoe Broadley, organised her third Mammoth charity jumble sale, in aid of two local charities close to her heart.
The jumble sale was a huge success, with so much jumble and so many people coming along to see what was on offer.
The total amount raised was an amazing £1100, split between both ourselves here at Headway East Kent and another local charity Folkestone Mind.
A very special “thank you” has to go to Zoe Broadley for collecting & storing so much jumble over the past three months, as well as thanks to all those who volunteered their time setting up the stalls and helping out on the day.
What a fun time had by all at Headway Folkestone’s open day on Saturday 6th October 2018.
Roger and Brett, two of Folkestone Headway clients decided they wanted to show their appreciation at the support received from Headway East Kent by doing a sponsored head shave. Amid much laughter from everyone on the day, we’d like to announce that an amazing £675 was raised.
We would all like to thank you both so much, and to Nathan & Jean Scotford of Cutting Edge Barbers Bouverie Road West. One the same day we also unveiled the day centres new plaque, in appreciation of the support from Face of Europe and the World, who’s support has been very much appreciated over the past 6yrs.
Well done to Roger and Brett and thank you ALL!
