Each year we nominate a charity and raise funds through events, raffles and donations:
Our nominated charity for 2010-2011 is the Caldecott Foundation who provide care for the most vulnerable children in the UK who have suffered cruelty and neglect. They provide a full range of care services including Assessment, 52 and 38 week Residential Care, Education, Therapy and Fostering and are based in Ashford, Kent. This year marks their centenary year and we are delighted to be supporting them.
Our nominated charity for 2009-2010 The Maidstone Museums Foundation
Although the Museum is operated by Maidstone Borough Coucil, funds are still needed to raise funds for the conservation of nationally important collections and for the acquisition of new artefacts and specimens.
By supporting the Maidstone Museums’ Foundation KEC is helping to preserve a unique part of our local heritage.
Our charity for 2008-2009 was The Heart Of Kent Hospice.
The Heart of Kent Hospice specialises in providing palliative care for the people of Maidstone and the surrounding local communities and like all hospices they are always deserving of your support.
Our charity for 2007-2008 was The Kent Air Ambulance.
