£1,000 Starter

A donation of £1,000 to the YouCan Youth Cancer Support Group was made by Ramsgate Rotary Club, with the promise of £2,000 more to follow.

This year’s President, Graham Larcombe, next year’s Pat Hersant and the following year’s Henry Golding agreed to give the money over a three year period to the home which gives free holidays to young people, their friends and family, in a Westgate property.

Terrie Kennon, the charity’s East Kent Co-ordinator, received the cheque at a weekly meeting of the club at the Pegwell Bay Hotel.

She thanked the club for their support for the charity which gives young sufferers a chance to have a break from their day to day lives and the stress and anxiety of living with cancer.
