Centre hopes to win vote and £25,000
The Rare Breeds Centre in Woodchurch has been nominated to receive a £25,000 grant.
The Masonic Charitable Foundation is donating £3m to 300 charities across the country as part of the Freemasonry’s 300th anniversary celebrations.
The Canterbury Oast Trust (COT) and the Rare Breeds Centre are among eight charities to be shortlisted in east Kent.
Each charity will receive a grant but it is down to the public to determine how much money is given, ranging from £4,000 to £25,000.
Angela Phipps, who works at the COT, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be chosen. We’re planning to build a new training academy at the Rare Breeds Centre to support people with a learning disability in gaining skills to live more independently, so the donation will help support people now and for the future.
“A donation of £25,000 would make a huge difference to us.”

Voting ends on Monday, July 31.
