Gordon Henderson Thanks the People of Swale
The Sittingbourne and Sheppey Conservative Association (SSCA) and Gordon Henderson MP would like to thank everyone who donated items following their Grenfell Tower appeal.
Churches and community centre’s in London were overwhelmed with items so it was decided that the items donated by the residents of Sittingbourne and Sheppey would be sold or donated to local causes.
Items donated that were sold included clothes, toys and books, a Playstation2 games console, a pram and a vintage telephone. In addition, toiletries, blankets and food were given to Seashells Children’s Centre in Sheerness for their food bank and homeless service. In total the sales raised £350, which included a donation from Gordon Henderson.
Mr Henderson said, ‘We were overwhelmed with donations, which highlighted people’s community spirit and willingness to help others in difficult times. The SSCA and I would like to thank everyone for their generosity. We are very proud of the residents of Sittingbourne and Sheppey.’
