Gullands help Dandelion Time row to Rio
On Friday 7 October, Gullands took part in the annual Dandelion Time Rowathon to raise money for the support and welfare of families across Kent.
This year’s rowathon, named #Row2Rio, saw participants embark on a journey to Rio, raising £14,000 for charity. Gullands’ team, including Alan Williams, David Brown, Lizzie Smith and Victoria Turner, rowed 10,000 metres of the distance.
Dandelion Time is a Kent charity for children and families struggling with trauma arising from physical or emotional abuse, neglect or domestic violence. Based on a small farm near Maidstone, the charity works with both children and parents, with the aim of helping children improve their self-confidence, sense of self worth, increase their emotional well being and re-engage positively at school. The charity has achieved impressive outcomes with 82% of children successfully re-engaging at school. Last year at least 200 children and their families benefitted from the service.
Gullands’ Partner, Alan Williams, comments: “Dandelion Time does a fantastic job supporting families across Kent. It is a charity very close to our hearts here at Gullands and we are delighted to be sponsoring them once again. This is the third year that we have taken part in the rowathon and it just keeps getting better!”
