Sudbury’s outgoing Mayor, Cllr Jack Owen, chose Kernos as one of the local charities that he lent his support to during his 2015/16 term.
The donation amounts from various fund-raising events that took place during Cllr Owen’s 12-months in office were subsequently split between his nominated charities, with the share that the Kernos Centre has now very gratefully received coming to over £1500.
Finding local, long-term financial support can prove problematic, so this funding is good news for potential clients of Kernos, since every penny allocated to the Centre from the Mayor’s fund will go to help the provision of the professional counselling and support for people in Sudbury and the surrounding area suffering from debilitating emotional and psychological difficulties.
Welcome funding contributions totaling £275 have also recently been received from Hadleigh Town Council and Monks Eleigh Parish Council, continuing the generous support that these local authorities have provided in previous years for the Centre’s Suffolk-based clients.
You too can help Kernos by providing vital funding 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
