Cotswold Outdoor Film Donation

Canterbury’s Cotswold Outdoor store was recently approached by Friday Filmworks to use the store during filming. All was agreed with the “fee” being a donation to KSAR and two other charities and a cheque for £500 was presented today by store manager Steve Male. A very big “thank you” to all concerned.

We are extremely grateful for some recent substantial grants from various charitable trusts: Postcode Community Trust (People’s Postcode Lottery) Roger De Haan Charitable Trust Kent Community Foundation These funds will help us purchase and convert a much-needed, brand new Search Control Vehicle. THANK YOU!
