A few words from the Mayor:

“The funds raised will go to Tenterden Memory Café who provide critical setting and support for those people living with dementia and dementia related illnesses, their family and carers.

We have a range of amazing “auction lots” ranging from wine tours to meals to balloon trips to accommodation. If you are a ninja fan we have something for you as well!

If you would like to actively participate and enjoy the fun of bidding for exciting lots, please do support us".
