Gullands put their oar in for Dandelion Time3.10.2016
Gullands is sponsoring the annual Dandelion Time Rowathon for the third year, continuing to help raise money for the support and welfare of families across Kent.
Last year’s rowathon saw participants embark on a 5,618-mile journey from Marden to Madagascar, raising over £13,000. This year’s rowathon will take
place between 23 September to 7 October.
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 an absolutely fantastic job of 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. We can’t wait to get back onto those rowing machines. Good luck to all those taking part!”
