Dover Outreach Centre has been given nearly £800 raised by the Mayor Councillor Sue Jones at charity events during the year. The Outreach Centre provides a route back to normal life for homeless people including help with accommodation, health care, and the everyday things like a postal address that most of us can take for granted. Many of the people that Outreach have helped our now back in work.
A quiz, a celebration of International Women’s Day and a Motorcycle Show and tea at the Dover Transport Museum all contributed to the final total which is being shared between the Mayor’s chosen charities the Outreach Centre and the Alzheimer’s Society.
Sue said –
All the events raising money for charities this year have been well attended and great fun with lots of Dover’s great community spirit in evidence. I am so pleased to have been able to do my bit as Mayor to raise the profile of organisations doing so much good work together with some much needed funds.
