Karen Kenward Regional Fundraising Manager went on to say; “We are so grateful to John and the Oddfellows club members for their generosity. We need to raise in excess of 10.5 million each year in order to be able to provide palliative care services free of charge to the local community. Fundraising is of vital importance and it is only through the continued generosity of supporters such as The Oddfellows that enables us to provide the care to all who need it in east Kent”
