We did it! The KM Colour Run

PHOTO-2019-06-10-11-44-30 (1)

With manager, Jaye, and WALT volunteers Donal and Liam, doing the hard work, a fun day was nevertheless had by all – particularly resident doggy, Sam!

We’ve no idea what the times were, because, let’s face it, no-one was timing. The priority was to become as multicoloured as possible. The powder – distributed by hand or fire extinguisher – is organic and washes out easily enough, and tastes like sherbet, so it’s all good!

The total raised hasn’t been properly calculated but we reckon it’s around the £300 mark. Here’s a snapshot of Sam basking in the glory 🙂

The KM Charity Walk

KM Charity Walk

The KM Charity walk will take place in Maidstone Sunday 23rd June, with the start and conclusion at the beautiful grade 2 listed mansion, Mote House.

The main 10-mile route leads walkers through beautiful Kent countryside, with those wishing to take on a shorter distance opting for a five-mile route.

New for 2019 is a summer scarecrow competition with Kent schools, clubs and charities, who will be able to enter their scarecrow creation and have the chance of winning a prize.

There will be goody bags and medals for walkers on their return, as well as a barbecue.

By teaming up with the KM Charity you can help raise money for us here at the Net Community Hub. Sponsorship raised will be divided so that 70 per cent goes to your charity, The Net Community Hub and 30 per cent will go to our important literacy work with primary school children.

Brunch and a bit more …

IMG_2313

The Net and WALT are delighted to brighten up our Wednesday daytimes, introducing ‘Brunch and a bit more’!

As stated, there’ll be nibbles by way of a bacon roll, or perhaps waffles – something tasty each week, washed down with a cuppa. And all for a paltry £2!

That’s the brunch part anyway. The bit more will include a singalong (like today’s inaugural brunch), arts & crafts,  special visitors – it’s very much lead by the attendees, who’ve already begun making a list of what they’d enjoy.

So why not head down our way on Wednesdays between 10am-2pm? We look forward to seeing you.

colour run
Are you dong anything on Sunday, June 9? If not, how about coming along to the KM Colour Run with us to raise funds?

Whether you run, jog, or walk, it’s a great way to raise some money and get active – all the while being showered with coloured powder!

The event is less about your 10-minute-mile and more about having fun. The KM Colour Run is a 5K, un-timed run in which participants are doused from head to toe in different colours at points throughout the run. The aim is start white and finish bright!

The KM Colour Run is a great fundraising and team-building event appropriate for participants of all ages (U16’s must be accompanied by an adult runner).

This is a collaborative event enabling you to run for your own charity. Your charity will receive 70% of sponsor monies, with the remaining 30% going to the KM Charity Team. This will cover event costs and fund the KM Charity Team’s child literacy and road safety work with schools.

Gift Aid collected on manual sponsor forms is retained by KM Charity Team and Gift Aid raised using our own Virgin Money Giving sponsorship page is split 70/30 between your chosen charity and KM Charity Team. Participants are required NOT to set-up their own online donation page not linked to the KM Charity Team page. All instructions on how to create your linked Virgin Money Giving page are sent out post-booking.

To book your spot, please click here and follow the instructions. Use booking code COLLAB19 for a £6 discount. See you there!

Enjoying an Easter Lunch

IMG_2270

We undertook a special one off for our community during the Easter holidays, when we invited everyone along for an Easter lunch.

With twenty three of us getting together for a chat over a buffet and lots of tea, a fun  afternoon was had, with clamours of “more, more”. It will happen, so watch this space.
