Cheerful Sparrows Charity Thanet

Some years ago, we helped to build and still support the Cheerful Sparrows wards at QEQM hospital, Margate. However, not everyone is aware that we also support the local community in countless ways. For many people, referred to us by professionals such as social workers and teachers, we are a safety net when they have nowhere else to turn. Our committee of eight dedicated people, who give freely of their time and expertise, fully considers and prioritises the cases each month that we meet.  After the meeting we then follow through with practical help.

We are and will remain impartial, neutral and independent. We respond to requests from the Cheerful Sparrows Ward Staff at the QEQM hospital and professional organisations, including Homestart, Children’s Centres, SureStart,  GP s and Children’s Services. We are often able to help in a very small way to make a big difference to people’s lives.

We welcome new members who can join us for £10 a year, receive our Newsletter and attend our events which includes an AGM in Spring .

Our Committee members:

  • Stanley Evans, President

  • Jan Buckley, Chairman

  • Ruth Farmer, Vice-Chair

  • Pam Shed, Secretary

  • Jane Williams, Treasurer

  • Sue Dyson, Committee Member

  • John Skidmore, Committee Member

  • Derek Williams, Committee Member

We all live in Thanet and are unpaid volunteers. The Charity has no paid staff, does not pay anyone a pension, has no properties nor a head office.

“Thank you for all your past, present and future support you offer the children of Thanet which I know is greatly appreciated by professionals and families.”
