Champion Stories

Thanet Earth share the stories of some of the community causes and charities that we have helped since April 2022.

Ursuline College

What started as a simple email request for a donation of produce has quickly grown into what we believe is going to be an impactful collaboration which we hope will reach across our local community.

Following a presentation by the Youth SVP Committee, we had the chance to sit down with Ursuline’s Head Teacher, Danielle Lancefield and some of her team to discuss the issues the school is facing not only in the current economic climate but also being located in an area which ranks in the top 5 in the UK for child poverty.

 

About the SVP Youth Committee

In an innovative and forward thinking move the college has encouraged a group of Year 10 students to set up the Youth SVP Committee to drive all fund-raising events. The committee meet every Friday to discuss new ideas and how to best distribute any funds. They are supported by around sixty of their fellow pupils.

 

Our commitment to Ursuline College

  • Thanet Earth has committed to donating produce regularly to the college
  • Educational support where appropriate
  • Supporting the college in their efforts in the local community
  • A substantial financial contribution towards their fundraising targets across the year

Thanet Earth MD, Chris Butler said, “We are excited to be able to collaborate with Ursuline College, their innovative approach to fund raising is impressive and I believe that their ethos around helping those that need it most align perfectly with our Community Champions programme”.

Danielle Lancefield, Ursuline College Head Teacher commented, “I am immensely proud of our Youth SVP and their leader, Miss Paula Gaffney. Their forward-thinking approach and focus on the ‘Serviam’ values our school is built on, makes them outstanding ambassadors for our school and the local community. We are incredibly proud to have forged a partnership with Thanet Earth and are so grateful for their support, generosity, and faith in our endeavours”.

 

Monkton Nature Reserve

Following on from the successful partnership with Monkton Nature Reserve in 2022,  we have continued to support them. 

This year we provided funding for the furnishing of their new polytunnel, which will serve as a educational area for visitors to the nature reserve.

The finished area will have ample space and access for wheelchair users including a ramp into the polytunnel and lowered working surfaces inside.

You can find out more about the work being done at the reserve by visiting their website (www.monkton-reserve.org)

 

Thanet Galaxy Pan-Disability Football Club

Club founder Steve Lancaster explained, “Thanet Galaxy PDFC will shortly celebrate 15 years of providing football training, coaching and competition to players with physical, emotional, educational, and behavioural disabilities who would otherwise not have been able to enjoy a club membership and teamwork ethos.

“We are extremely grateful for Thanet Earth’s award which has allowed us to purchase all weather training tops for our players who will wear the Galaxy and Thanet Earth logos with pride”.

Thanet Earth Head of Commercial James Provins added, “In April 2022 we launched our Community Outreach Project to support a number of excellent worthy causes that are going above and beyond for our local community. Steve and Thanet Galaxy PDFC are a brilliant example of that. We’re proud to have been able to support the team with new jackets and we look forward to seeing them continue to thrive!”
