The Grand supports 2014
The Grand Folkestone chooses ARCCC (Activities Respite Rehabilitation Care Centres) as their nominated Charity for this year. ARRCC announced the opening of their new centre at 17 - 19 Tontine Street, Folkestone back in July 2013, Eric Hotson Chairman of Kent County Council performed the ceremony. He was joined by Jack Hemmings, past Chairman and present Treasurer of ARRCC, Alastair Upton CEO the Creative Foundation.
Grace O’Neill, Chief Executive of ARRCC said: This is fantastic news.
The new centre is the result of partnership working between ARRCC, Kent Adult Social Care, The Creative Foundation, Town and Country Housing and Shepway District Council, not forgetting a team of dedicated local Volunteers.
ARRCC welcomes new members and volunteers to take part in their vision, which is for adults with physical and sensory impairments, having the confidence to make the most of their lives, with equal access to all the opportunities available to the wider community. We work to promote individuals’ self-esteem and independence by taking a holistic approach to mind and body, and providing a range of activities, therapy and developmental opportunities within a welcoming and sociable atmosphere where everything is possible. ARRCC is very aware that their service offers much needed respite to their Member’s Carers.
Trish Bishop, Centre Manager is excited about having the support of The Grand and is in the process of launching their latest fund-raising project “Arrcc Lark” on Pinterest for an Upcycled, recycled, vintage and retro fashion show’.
