Com­mu­nity day out is pretty cool

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Summer Fun -

A com­mu­nity fun day raised £597 for two char­i­ties.

Res­i­dents of Stanhope and The Limes in Ash­ford got to­gether on Satur­day for fair­ground rides, stalls, sideshows and mu­sic.

Ac­tiv­i­ties were pro­vided around the Stanhope Cen­tre by hous­ing, care and sup­port providers Places for Peo­ple and Moat.

The money raised will be split between Car­ers Sup­port and the Alzheimer’s So­ci­ety.

Rachel Shorter, sup­port worker at Places for Peo­ple, said: “We do this ev­ery year to bring the com­mu­nity to­gether.”
