Thank you to everyone that donated to our collection for Oasis Domestic Abuse Service and their clients.
We visited the Oasis shop in Margate on Saturday 4th March to hand over your generous donations. Everything you donated will go to help those in need, who often have fled their home bringing few their belongings with them.

This year, KRG’s chosen charity is CLASP – Counselling Life Advice and Suicide Prevention.
We’ve done lots of excellent fundraising before including everything from sponsored marathons on skates to collecting tins and running raffles at games, so we’re hoping to make this year as successful for CLASP.
CLASP’s aim and mission is to confront the stigma surrounding mental and stress related illnesses, daily emotional trauma and suicide.
Want to get involved? CLASP are holding one of their ‘Walking out of Darkness’ events on Saturday 13th May 2017 in London.
If you want to find out more about this event, or their work in general, see www.claspcharity.com or check their facebook page.
On May 29th members of Kent Roller Girls will be skating a marathon at the South Coast Roll in aid of Canterbury Food Bank.
The South Coast Roll is an annual event held at Goodwood race track in West Sussex. Those aiming to skate a full marathon (that’s 26 miles!!) need to complete 11 laps of the undulating track, whatever the weather. Last year saw our skaters battling strong winds and rain so we’re hoping that things improve on that front this time round!
If you’d like to support the team just go to our Just Giving crowdfunding page. The food bank (registered charity no. 1153791) is an excellent cause and any amount that you can donate is greatly appreciated and goes towards helping them support low income families and individuals across the Canterbury district.
