 Once again the Club ran a bottle stall in support of The Friends of Faversham Cottage Hospital at their Summer Fair last Saturday the 1st July.

This is a popular event which the club has supported for a number of years and this year was no exception.  Lots of visitors to the Fair tried their luck on the bottle stall and their were many lucky winners.  With prizes ranging from washing-up liquid and bubble bath to soft drinks, wines and spirits, some winners were more lucky than others!  It was great to see that at the end the day we raised £171  for the Hospital.

On Monday this week our club had an extremely interesting presentation from George and Zoe of the "IQ F1 Team" from the QE School Faversham. Our club sponsored them to take part in the National School F1 championships. Participants had to approach the project using all aspects of engineering and commerce and adhere to rigid rules laid down by the Schools F1 organisation. The great news is the QE School team came 4th out of over 50 teams. Their determination and skill will hopefully get them up the table next year so they can compete at the international finals.

We had a Bollywood theme for this year's annual President's Evening, which was held on Saurday 17th June at Creek Creative in Faversham.  Everyone got into the spirit of the occassion and there were some magnificant costumes - President Duncan and Rachel (right) certainly excelled.  In line with the theme, the meal was a delicious curry banquet provided by Corrinne's Creative Kitchen, and after supper we were entertained (and tried) to some Indian dancing under the direction of Emily Cook from the Faversham based Khushi Feet charity that supports homeless children in Kolkata.

On the 9th June the Club provided some marshals for the annual Proms in the Market concert organized by the Town Council.  The weather for the evening was perfect and the crowd were entertained by the Mission Brass Band and Faversham Choral Society with the repertoire culminating in traditional Last Night of the Proms music.  Ted and Cindy (pictured) certainly got into the spirit of the evening.

Supporting 3rd World Entrepeuners

Our Club's International Committee is helping small 3rd World entrepreneurs get their businesses off to a successful start via the special Crowd Funding organisation, Lend With Care. By lending small amounts of money to these entrepreneurs we are helping these people achieve commercial independence and employ people in areas where there is little opportunity. As the money is paid back we re-invest in similar projects. Read Kry Pak's story and get an insight to how we are helping.
