Rainbow Centre donation

 

 

Folkestone Duplicate Bridge Club has raised £ 610 to help support the work of the Folkestone and Hythe Rainbow Centre. Mary Stredwick, the chief executive of the Rainbow Centre, received the donation from club chairman David Ellerby (right), accompanied by Chris Ruddle (left), who is minister at Folkestone Baptist Church where the bridge club plays every Monday afternoon.

 

 

 

 

Mary said " On behalf of everyone here at the Rainbow Centre, I thank Folkestone Duplicate Bridge Club members for your donation. With the rising cost of living, we are seeing more and more people using our Homeless, Foodbank and Debt management services; therefore, we are hugely grateful for your timely donation, which helps us meet the increasing need. As a small charity, we rely on your generosity to make a huge difference in our community. Together we can do so much more! "

 

 

 

 

David said " Our club has over 120 members and we play together once a week face-to-face and, since the first covid lockdown, once a week online. We welcome new members and have four qualified bridge teachers who run classes at different levels to match the needs of those wanting to take up our marvellous game. Our members have been very generous over many years in supporting Children in Need and I'm delighted that this has now extended to our support of the Rainbow Centre."
