We are really excited to be supporting Canterbury Food Bank this year.
They are a community project and registered charity, who provide emergency food parcels to individuals and families in short term financial crisis across the Canterbury District (Canterbury, Whitstable, Herne Bay and surrounding villages).
We’re hoping to get involved in food drives, raising funds and volunteering at various events over the next 12 months, so look out for details of what we’re up to and how you can help on our Facebook page.
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.
Kent Roller Girls will be taking part in the British Championships again this year as part of the Tier 3 Regional South group.
We will be up against teams from Cornwall, Plymouth, Bath, Surrey and Devon over the course of the next 8 months.
