HOSPICE IN THE WEALD

We’re focused on fundraising for Hospice in the Weald in 2022.

This amazing charity provides care completely free of charge to patients with a terminal illness, and those important to them, in West Kent and northern East Sussex. They are there 24 hours a day to help, support and care for patients with an illness where a cure is no longer possible, and for patients who will at some stage die from their illness, whenever that may be.

Hospice in the Weald

Based in Maidstone Road, Pembury with its pioneering Cottage Hospice in Five Ashes, Hospice in the Weald ensures everyone with a terminal illness, and those important to them, will always receive care that is completely free of charge. Independent from the NHS, Hospice in the Weald needs to raise over £8million each year to provide vital Hospice care in the community.

RUGBY FOR ALL: TONBRIDGE JUDDIANS RFC

Tonbridge Juddians RFC is the local rugby club for our Tonbridge staff. It offers the opportunity to play rugby to all ages, sizes, genders and abilities and runs five teams, including a women’s side, and a range of children’s teams.

We’re very proud to sponsor the Club, with our support focussed on the First XV and on the Minis programme. The First XV are currently top of the National 2 South League, and we’re aiming to keep them there.

We especially admire how the Club encourages boys and girls from under 6 to 11 to play, have fun and enjoy the game, through the Minis programme. Children under the age of six are gently eased into non-contact rugby, through play and fun activities. Under sevens and eights play non-contact ‘tag’ rugby and, from the under nines upwards, the contact game is developed until you see 11 year olds train for, play and enjoy the adult game.

COMMUNITY FAITH AND BUSINESSES

We’re proud to support the parish magazine of St John’s Church at Hildenborough, and we’ve been doing this for 10 years, through advertising in the magazine and using the services of local tradespeople who advertise there, too.

St John’s believes that people matter, and we couldn’t agree more. We’re proud to belong to a community of people of all faiths or of none.
