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.
This February we are aiming to collect 500 foody things to donate to Canterbury Food Bank
In order to collect enough variety of goods, and in an attempt to get everything CFB needs for their parcels, we’ve given each day of the week a theme…
- Macaroni Monday (think all things pasta and rice)
- Tin Food Tuesday (tuna, tomatoes, vegetables, beans, soup and such like)
- Wash Up Wednesday (cleaning products and washing powder and toiletries)
- Thirsty Thursday (no alcohol allowed, just drinks like tea, coffee and fruit squash)
- Baby Food Friday (speaks for itself, but you could always throw some nappies and wipes in there too!)
- Sweet Things Saturday (rice pudding, biscuits and custard)
- Sweetcorn Sunday (for everyones favourite tinned veg)
But don’t feel you have to stick to our plan, any donations are welcome at any time.
You can either give your donations to the Kent roller girl of your choice, or get in touch with us on any of our social media platforms and we’ll arrange a rendezvous.
CFB has specific things that they are in desperate need of for their clients, so please have a look at the list below before parting with your hard earn cash. And please ensure any donations have at least 3 months left on their best before date.

This year we are again collecting toiletries and other such small gifts for Oasis Domestic Abuse Service.
We are well on the way to making a good start on this and we hope to have as big, if not even bigger, a bounty as we did last year!
If you’d like to help us support this fantastic organisation, just pop us a message on our Facebook page, or hand your donations over to your favourite KRG skater by the end of this month.
