INTERNATIONAL RALLY HELD @ DITTON

Thursday 7th November 2019 in aid of Footsteps International.

DITTON

International Chairman Sheila Dicks is pictured with Anni Bignold President of Broadstairs Inner Wheel supported by other members of the Club, raising funds for the District Charity, Footsteps. The aim is to provide a brighter future for former street boys and orphans, in Kenya. The colour theme this year was bright blue. The day raised just over £3,000 helping to make the future look as bright as the colour suggests. Well done everybody!!


Club meeting Monday 21st October 

Our speaker for the evening was Jenny Matterface who gave a fascinating talk on the work of the CT10 Charities and the Gap Project.

History


The CT10 history began with a bequest to the Vicar of St. Peter's Church from Richard Culmer in 1485.

In his will he left 6 acres of farmland in the centre of what we now know as Broadstairs town centre. This includes the land between Vere Road, Alexandra Road and the Pathway.

This was farmland and the income used to relieve poverty and help the poor and needy. This land was to produce an income for the charity and the trustees have a duty to obtain the best result under Charity Commission regulations. 

In 1726 Hannah Taddy left 4 acres in St. Peter's also to the church with similar aims. This is the land between Grafton Road and Reading Street Road.

Both parcels of land are now non-statutory allotments and bring in a regular income from rents.

Five other small charities were placed under the umbrella of what is known now as CT10 Parochial Charities but the main endowment is from the estate of Richard Culmer.

The Gap Project in Broadstairs is a vibrant and innovative charity serving the local community in an area of deprivation, using the fantastic facilities of Queens Road Baptist Church. Drop-in sessions provide a hot meal, laundry and shower facilities.

Voluntary Sector Partners, *Porchlight and Turning Point are on-site to offer resettlement support.

*DISTRICT12 Charity for 2019/20


Broadstairs President Anni Bignold gave Jenny a small donation from the Club and Rita Rowlett gave the vote of thanks.

Anni  Bignold took over as President of Broadstairs Inner Wheel at the end of June and has already made a splash with her fund raising Summer Tea Party.
