MP expresses concern for FACES of Kent
Local MP, Gordon Henderson, has written to the Kent County Council expressing his concern that Faces of Kent may be forced to close unless they receive emergency funding to see them through to April 2014, when they are hopeful they will be able to access funds from other sources.
Mr Henderson said:
“I am a huge fan of Faces of Kent, which does excellent work with a number of disadvantaged children in Sittingbourne and Sheppey. It would be a huge loss to our community if this fantastic charity was forced to close down through a temporary lack of funds.
“I know that Cllr Mike Whiting met the group recently and shares my concern and is lobbying his colleagues on Swale Borough Council, and local schools in the hope that they can come up with enough money to help fund the charity in the months ahead.
“In addition, following a letter to me from Faces of Kent, I wrote to the Kent County Council pleading with them to award Faces of Kent an emergency grant to see them through until next April, when hopefully they will be able to access other funding streams.”
