Our aim is to raise money for local and regional charities. We operate on a two-year cycle, nominating charities at the start of this cycle and donating at the end.
Our current cycle started in January 2019.
- Friends for Families: a small charity working in the Sevenoaks area to help families facing financial hardship. They provide direct, practical assistance to people who have been identified by Children’s Services as needing help which can’t be provided by central or local government: once they’ve received a referral from Children’s Services they step in to help to fill that gap.
- ICARE – is a small local charity, based in Green Street Green, Orpington, providing rehabilitative care to people who have had a stroke. We have been in existence for over 30 years running a day centre in the Old School House for up to 20 people a day, five days a week.
We also support many local charities. Full details of our most recent donations, in March 2019, can be found here.
A Contingency Fund of £1,000 has also been created to support local charities or individuals in need of charitable assistance where this need arises at other times of the year.

Charities are nominated at the end of each Carnival year. Details of how to nominate charities will be published here.
