In November, a team of Information Services staff at the University of Kent came together to raise money for Catching Lives.
Hannah Chamberlain at the University says: “The event was a great success and after totting up online donations and the amount raised on the night we can announce a grand total of £1,122 was raised!
Catching Lives works hard to support rough sleepers, homeless and vulnerably housed people in and around Canterbury. We were proud to be able to contribute to the efforts of such a vital community organisation. Terry from Catching Lives visited the Templeman Library to collect the cheque and informed us that the money we raised will be used to help with their winter shelter – an essential service for many in our city this Christmas.
Special thanks go out to Josie Caplehorne, Suzanne Duffy, Nikki Gregory and Clair Waller for pulling the event together so seamlessly!
Big thanks also to Dr Ollie Double for being a splendid quiz-master/compere and everyone who contributed to making the evening such a success.”
We send a big thank you to everyone involved for their support which will help us to continue to offer our services to those in our community who need them the most.
