As part of our continuing efforts to support local communities, Your Leisure Kent has donated £2000 pounds worth of food and drink to Our Kitchen on the Isle of Thanet, who with the support of Ramsgate Town Council, have been producing food packages and distributing them across Thanet, either directly to the homes of those in need or to the 18 food banks across the area.
The donations included a wide range of food and drink from snacks from the Leisure Centres, to frozen food from Margate Winter Gardens, with some interesting additions including salmon, Parma ham and haggis.
Ian Barker, Your Leisure’s Community and Funding Manager, said; “We have been fortunate and privileged to work the “Our Kitchen” on several projects before, combining healthy eating with physical activity, to reach some of the most deprived communities in Thanet, so these donations were not only a very natural thing to do, but also because of our relationship with Our Kitchen, and the great logistical support of Ramsgate Town Council, it was also an easy thing to do. As a non-for-profit organisation we are always looking at ways to serve and support our local communities better and improve everyone’s wellbeing, this was just another opportunity to do that.”
Your Leisure Kent and Our Kitchen on the Isle of Thanet have worked together for 4 years as part of the Leisure firm’s community objectives, and the partnership has seen plenty of success.
Kevin Fordham, Managing Director Your Leisure Kent, said; “We are extremely passionate about delivering on our vision of ‘enjoy life, have fun’ and pride ourselves on the range of opportunities that Your Leisure provides across East Kent and the difference we make to local communities, this is just one more example of the many things we do, always putting people at the heart of what we do.”
Your Leisure continues to support and invest in their local communities, always looking for new ways to help people to “Enjoy Life and Have Fun”.
