DONATION: Charity benefits as planning campaign continues in Marden
Wednesday 26th June 2019
VILLAGERS who opposed 2,000 new homes in Marden handed over £230.73 to an anaesthesia charity.
Following the high-profile ‘March for Marden’ on May 18, protesters in Marden handed over the money they had collected at the march Safe Anaesthesia Worldwide on Monday, June 24.
At the march, people were asked to donate money to help produce a report that would be hand-delivered to the 55 Maidstone Borough Councillors, as well as to key Kent County Council members and officials at both Maidstone Borough Council and KCC.
Chair of Marden Planning Opposition Claudine Russell said: “This has now been professionally printed and delivered. We committed to donating half of the money raised at the march to our chosen charity and we are delighted to be supporting the work of Safe Anaesthesia Worldwide. This is a charity based here in Marden but with a global vision to provide live-saving anaesthetic equipment and training for people in developing countries.”
The campaign against the 2000-home development continues.
