15 Charitable Days
2016 is our 15th Anniversary and to celebrate we are supporting 3 local charities, Pilgrims Hospice, Kent Multiple Sclerosis Centre and Catching Lives. Over the next year Woodley Coles will be donating 15 days of their time to the three charities.
The voluntary work will include supermarket collections, participation in sporting events and ad hoc tasks that will benefit the charities, such as gardening and painting facilities. We will also be raising funds along the way for all charities.
Through our Virgin Money Giving Page, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and much appreciated by our team and these deserving local charity.
Thank you for your support and generosity!

Catching Lives is an independent charity aimed at supporting the rough sleepers, homeless and vulnerably housed in Canterbury and East Kent; those who have, for many reasons, fallen through the gaps in society and feel they have nowhere else to turn. Our vision is of a society where all are included and all, no matter how disadvantaged, can make a contribution. Catching Lives works towards ending the harm caused to individuals, families and the community, by homelessness, rough sleeping and insecure housing. We do this by offering immediate respite at our Canterbury Open Centre: working with our clients to help them to tackle their issues, access accommodation and find the motivation to take steps towards personal recovery and independent living
Pilgrims Hospices is a charity providing specialist palliative care free of charge to people in east Kent. We care for people with illnesses that can not be cured including cancer, heart failure, respiratory conditions and neurological diseases.Care is provided from the three sites in Canterbury, Ashford and Thanet, in patients homes and via community programmes. Support is also extended to families and carers. To keep delivering care to those that need it the most. Pilgrims has to raise £11 million each year from our local community, so fundraising is very important.
The aim of the Kent MS Therapy Centre is to improve the quality of life for people with Multiple Sclerosis, their families and those who care for them. Being diagnosed with MS can be a very demoralising experience and many people turn to the Centre for support. The Centre provides advice, information and practical therapies such as hyperbaric oxygen therapy, hydrotherapy, physiotherapy, counselling, body massage and reflexology to name a few. Specialist clinics and symptom management workshops are also held on a regular basis. Opened in 1985 the Centre offers a warm and caring environment for people of all ages and their relatives and friends. It is funded almost entirely by voluntary contributions, with MS patients themselves making a small contribution towards their therapies. The Centre is completely self suporting and receives no support from the Government or NHS whatsoever despite its obvious key role in the community
