Hard work brings in £8,000 for heart fund

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - OPINION -

THE Sorop­ti­mist Club of Ash­ford has worked tire­lessly over the past two years to raise money for the Bri­tish Heart Foun­da­tion. Past Pres­i­dent Liz Jake­man raised £2,500 in 2005 and last year Pres­i­dent Bev­er­ley Jarvis raised a fur­ther £5,360 for a grand to­tal of £8,130. The cash was raised by a variety of events and ac­tiv­i­ties, no­tably a sum­mer ball in 2005 and sum­mer con­cert in July 2006, to­gether with events like straw­berry teas, a sup­per at Siss­inghurst with a private visit to the gar­dens, sev­eral raf­fles, and col­lec­tions out­side Sains­burys in Ash­ford. Both pres­i­dents worked hard to achieve amaz­ing re­sult and to­gether with mem­bers of both Ash­ford and Can­ter­bury Sorop­ti­mists and Ash­ford Ro­tary Club, cel­e­brated at a pre­sen­ta­tion evening. The do­na­tion was re­ceived by Denise Watts the Bri­tish Heart Foun­da­tion’s vol­un­teer man­ager for Kent and Sus­sex, who pre­sented a cer­tifi­cate in recog­ni­tion of their ef­forts.
