Tea, Coffee and Pastries
This event is for Kent based construction businesses and women in the construction industry only.
Come along and join us at the next Kent Women in Construction event, an opportunity to network and engage with fellow Kent construction women.
Kent Women in Construction have decided to invite a charity along to this Coffee Morning Special and are pleased to support Porchlight and the project they are doing to support vulnerable women around Kent.
We are delighted to have Dr Sue Hornibrook who has been a trustee with Porchlight since 2009 and has just finished her tenure as the Chair of Trustees after 3 years in post. Dr Hornibrook is a highly successful and brilliant ‘from the heart’ speaker with details about this project and the work they do.
Porchlight are looking to raise a small support fund to develop this project that provides drinks, food, sanitary products and identification documents for female rough sleepers – things we so easily take for granted.
This event is FREE however we are asking you bring along a donation which will go directly to Porchlight.
Below is a breakdown of where your donations could be directed.
- £10.00: The cost of two calls to our helpline which is a lifeline for so many women and is often their first cry for help
- £10.00: Could pay for a birth certificate. Many people have no proof of identity, which they need for many things such as opening a bank account, to register with a GP, to receive benefits or to start work
- £20.50: Could provide an hour’s support to someone sleeping on the streets to help them to find out more about the help available
- £20.50: Could provide an hour’s support to someone struggling to maintain their tenancy and live independently
- £25.00: Could provide a basic welcome pack of food, toiletries and cleaning products for someone moving into a hostel
Surprisingly Kent has the highest number of female rough sleepers outside of London. Also surprisingly, this has consistently been around 20% of the total number of rough sleepers found in Kent.
We feel sure you will all be willing to support this charity and will be inspired by the work that they do.
