On Friday 15th September, the Kent MS Therapy Centre held their first fundraising Riverboat Cruise with fish and chip supper on the Kentish Lady in Maidstone.
The event was the idea of Centre member Toni Warner, who wanted to arrange an event in Maidstone that not only helped raise money for the Centre but also raised awareness of the Centre and multiple sclerosis.
With 50 guests on board, the evening featured a leisurely cruise down the River Medway, music and a charity raffle. The evening’s entertainment, provided by regular Boat DJ, DJ Sonance, was kindly sponsored by the Gallagher Group. Event photography was taken by Ashford based photographer Charlene Sonnenberg from All Star Photography. A donation from the sale of photographs from the event will also go to the Centre.
Raffle prizes were kindly donated by a number of local businesses and attractions. Nick and Linda Kennedy from the Kentish Lady also donated a family ticket as a prize on the evening as well.
The event has raised to date £712.10 for the Centre.
