Sir Robert and Lady Worcester kindly opened their home, Allington Castle, to Kent Community Foundation and guests to celebrate the charity’s recent successes and share its plans for the future. Every year Kent Community Foundation supports hundreds of local grassroots projects that tackle poverty, create opportunities for the disadvantaged and help those who are most vulnerable and socially excluded across Kent. This is only possible thanks to its growing network of local donors and fund-holders. On the evening, the resounding feedback from them was how much fun it is to be involved. Chairman of Trustees at Kent Community Foundation, The Lady Colgrain, gave thanks to supporters of Kent Community Foundation for their enduring commitment and passion. Vice Lord-Lieutenant, Richard Oldfield, spoke warmly of the very important role Kent Community Foundation plays in encouraging and supporting local charitable giving across the county.
