A big thank you to all the local people, groups and organisations who have helped us during the past months by answering our plea for help, published at the end of last year. As you know our financial situation in 2018 was dire and committee members were certain that we would not be able to continue after May 2019. We believed that our work helping those in need in Thanet would end. However, our Chair has been putting the case for the Cheerful Sparrows Thanet Charity to groups and organisations. Many of these have given generous donations to the Charity. The committee members have also been spreading the word. As a result some of you have donated to us, some on a regular basis; others have been fund raising with marathon running, quizzes and concerts; local shops have collecting boxes and supermarkets have been aiding us. We are delighted that our funds are now more healthy and we hope we can continue to support the local community for some months to come.
However, please continue to remember to support our charity in whatever way you can. You may even consider leaving us a donation in your will.
