On the 1st December 2012 we held our Christmas Fair which was a huge success and raised a record breaking £3,000 for the charity.
Many local people and Strode Park residents turned out to do a spot of Christmas shopping from the variety of stalls which were selling wonderful gifts, toys and home produce and lots of children had the chance to meet Santa and get their lists in nice and early! Mulled wine was a popular choice of refreshment in the cold but sunny weather and our children’s entertainer had the little ones enthralled with his magic show.
We wish to thank all our volunteers, everyone that came and braved the cold weather and also the local businesses that donated goods and prizes including: Superior Care, KM Charity Treasure Chest, P&O Ferries, WHAL Ltd, Active Life, Furley Page Solicitors, Marks & Spencer, Morrisons Herne Bay & Canterbury, Reeves & Co, Canterbury Garden Centre, Herne, The Co-operative Funeralcare Canterbury/Herne Bay, The Marlowe Theatre and Theatrecraft.

A new sensory playground for the children
Thanks to the generous donations of St. James Foundation, The Lady Freemasons, Faversham and District LVA and many other groups and individual donors, we have been able to start the first phase of a brand new sensory playground at Footprints, our residential and respite care home for children with disabilities.
This fantastic new project incorporates a variety of sensory play equipment focusing on colour and sound as well as wheelchair swings, a large nest swing and a specially adapted sandpit. The first phase was completed in time for the summer holidays and the children have had a wonderful time exploring the new play area and having fun on all the equipment.
We now need to raise a further £8,000 to complete the playground and we are hoping to achieve this by next spring.
