Rotary Club President John Dyke said that “ Our club has served Gravesend for nearly 90 years and once again the people of Gravesham have shown they care for those in need.  On behalf of Marie Curie we  would like to thank Brandon and Ruby and all those shoppers  who helped  support such a good cause.”

The Rev Ken Berken visited the club on 22.2.16 to update members on his childrens charity in the village of Kigezi in Uganda. Our club has supported Ken in his work for some years and this time presented him with a cheque to help bring fresh water and sanitation to the orphan’s home in this remote part of Africa.
