In November a team of Information Services staff came together to raise money for Catching Lives. The event was a great success and after totting up online donations and the amount raised on the night we can announce a grand total of £1,122!
Catching Lives works hard to support rough sleepers, homeless and vulnerably housed people in and around Canterbury. We were proud to be able to contribute to the efforts of such a vital community organisation. Terry from Catching Lives (right) visited the Templeman Library to collect the cheque and told us that the money we raised will be used to help with their winter shelter – an essential service for many in our city this Christmas.
Special thanks go out to Suzanne Duffy (from left), Nikki Gregory, Josie Caplehorne and Clair Waller (not pictured) for pulling the event together!
Big thanks also to Dr Oliver Double for being a splendid quiz-master/compere and everyone who contributed to making the evening such a success.
