A BIG thank you to all who donated clothing to the CSPA’s Refugee Appeal just before half term. Over 30 young people from all over Kent attended a recent event organised by Kent Kindness Maidstone and had fun playing table football and table tennis, enjoying a good meal, choosing warm winter clothing and speaking with the charities who were there to provide specific help and advice. Representatives attended from the Red Cross, the Refugee Council, Kent Law Society, Young Lives Foundation, Virtual School Kent, National Citizen Service, Asphaleia, and a national children’s trafficking charity which has just started up in Kent.
This was the first ever event of its kind and was a success. The plan is to run it again, probably in the New Year. Some of the children and staff who attended wanted to pass on their gratitude to you, as you will see below.
