Following the success of this year’s Charity Golf Day held at Chestfield Golf Club on 12th September 2014 Rotary Club of Chestfield were able to make a donation of £2461.67 to Kent MS Therapy Centre on Friday 3rd October 2014. The Golf Day was sponsored by GS Joiner & Sons Ltd, a long established local builder, and MD Graham Joiner came to the Kent MS Centre to present the cheque with our President Paul Hooke-Overy to their Fund Raising Manager Helen Wrathen. Several members of our Club also attended and were able to see firsthand the existing buildings and the fantastic new building that will be completed by the end of November 2014. We also met with several MS sufferers who receive treatment at the Centre. The Centre has an ever growing membership of over 400 MS sufferers and can treat in its pressure chamber up to 100 people a day. The new Centre will enable them to help even more MS sufferers and the new hydrotherapy pool and fitness area will offer more facilities than currently available plus there is a large welcoming social area where friends and family can also relax along with a large presentation / meeting room that can be used by the Centre and also made available to outside bodies for meetings etc.  The new building is designed to be “expandable” over the coming years if demand outstretches the initial facilities and is full of “environmental” measures to reduce its carbon footprint and running costs for the future. We would like to thank everyone who took part in the Charity Golf Day as teams playing or sponsors of holes / raffle prizes as without their support this sum of money could not have been raised.
