Community Fundraiser of the Year – 13th March 2020

HRGS Chairman, Richard Emmett, was the worthy winner of ‘Community Fundraiser of the Year‘ award at the Swale Borough Council 2020 Volunteer Swale Awards ceremony, hosted at The Barnyard in Upchurch, on Friday 13th March.

Richard said “It was a lovely evening in company with other award recipients and with my wife Theresa, who works so hard behind the scenes. Thank you to everyone who supports the work we do and to those who nominated me. Whilst I raise funds for various Swale heritage groups, the Kent wide Wheels of Time scheme is the most remarkable, as it brings young inquiring minds to the world of heritage across Swale and Kent.”
