Plan to set up sup­port group

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others -

The Royal National In­sti­tute of Blind Peo­ple (RNIB) is look­ing to set up a Vol­un­teer Fundrais­ing Group Ash­ford to sup­port the work of the char­ity. There are more than 7,000 peo­ple who are reg­is­tered blind and par­tially sighted within Kent.

The group’s aim will be to go out into the com­mu­nity to raise funds for the char­ity and help raise aware­ness about RNIB.

The group will have lots of dif­fer­ent vol­un­teer­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties, from group leader to event or­gan­iser or just for peo­ple who can only help out now and then. There will also sup­port from RNIB to max­imise fundrais­ing.

A pre­lim­i­nary meet­ing about set­ting up the group will be held at 11am on Mon­day (July 15) in the Food with Friends cafe at Ash­ford Gate­way Plus, Church Road, Ash­ford.
