Friends of Glemsford WI donate over £900 to Kernos

Back in June the Friends of Glemsford WI, led by Lesley Lagden, organised a Summer Ball and Hog Roast in Glemsford Village Hall.

Sue De’Ath – a long-time volunteer with Kernos – suggested to the committee that the proceeds from the event could be donated towards helping Kernos to support local people who suffer from emotional and psychological problems.

The Ball was a great success, with everyone who attended enjoying some great food and later dancing the night away to a superb band featuring “the golden sounds of Hazel Fleming, Steve ‘the singing barber’ Hendry and Lisa Porter”.

Presentation ChequeAs a result, the organisers recently visited Kernos (left) to present  a (suitably large!) cheque for £920, which formally handed over – and was most gratefully received – in the courtyard garden at the Centre that was recently refurbished by members of Sudbury Round Table.

This money will go towards part-funding around 50 treatment sessions for those of our clients who are unable to pay the full cost of their counselling.

You can also help Kernos to provide counselling for people, regardless of their financial situation, by donating money directly – this can be done either by:

1) sending a cheque, made out to ‘The Kernos Centre’, to Kernos Centre, 32-34 Friars Street, Sudbury, Suffolk, CO10 2AG


2) clicking on the ‘Donate Now’ button at the top of this screen, and following the instructions.

If you are a taxpayer, your contribution could also be eligible for Gift Aid – which means that every £10 you contribute is worth £12.50 to Kernos. For a Gift Aid Declaration form, please contact the Centre – either at the above address, by phone on 01787 882883, or by e-mail at
