Gullands put their oar in to support local charity6.01.2016
Gullands has once again sponsored the annual Dandelion Time Rowathon, helping to raise money for the support and welfare of families across Kent.
This year’s rowathon saw participants embarking on an ambitious 5,618 mile virtual journey from Marden to Madagascar between 28 September to 11 October.
Gullands and the other teams helped the organisers to raise in excess of £13,000.
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.
Partner, Alan Williams said: “We always have a great time at Dandelion Time’s rowathon. Dandelion Time is a charity very close to our hearts here at Gullands. They do an absolutely fantastic job of supporting families across Kent and we are delighted to have sponsored them once again.”
