Cen­tre party to help mark a mile­stone

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - - Front Page -

The Can­ter­bury Um­brella Cen­tre will cel­e­brate its 25th an­niver­sary in the city next week with a party.

The char­ity in St Peter’s Place pro­vides a drop-in cafe and sup­ports peo­ple with men­tal health is­sues and learn­ing dif­fi­cul­ties.

It also runs a job club and adult ed­u­ca­tion classes as well as ac­tiv­i­ties, in­clud­ing arts and crafts, fit­ness classes, yoga and a pool.

Now lo­cal de­sign agency, Dodgems and Floss has helped the char­ity mark its an­niver­sary by giv­ing its logo and pub­lic­ity ma­te­rial a new look. The cen­tre will also cel­e­brate the oc­ca­sion with a party at noon on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 20, where the pub­lic can meet the staff and vol­un­teers.

The char­ity’s fund­ing from the county coun­cil was cut three years ago and it now re­lies on lo­cal busi­nesses for sup­port as well as univer­sity stu­dents and sixth-for­m­ers who vol­un­teer their time.
