Rams provide accommodation for local charity

Ramsgate's community initiatives expand yet further

Ramsgate have been very busy in their community during lockdown, running around the Isthmian League (virtually) for charity and feeding stranded lorry drivers, and now they've stepped up to help a local charity by providing them with accommodation.

The Community Project, based in Margate, needed to find a new home- and the Rams have stepped in to provide it, in Harbour Street, Ramsgate.

The scheme supports vulnerable adults in the Thanet community, particularly those with learning difficulties or mental health issues- and they had been running a clothes and household goods bank which needed to find a new location, as their existing space was about to be withdrawn.

Rams Chairman James Lawson told the Isle of Thanet News:

“I’m absolutely delighted that Ramsgate Football club can support this much needed community project. We are pleased to be able to help by providing a shop and storage. This will allow the clothes bank to continue and to better meet the needs of people here in Ramsgate.”
