St Paul’s Players have chosen Kingston Young Carers for their charity this year

- look out for Grease on 28th/29th June!

 


St Paul's Players are a local amateur dramatics group who

raise money for local charities.

The group has been treading the boards since 1977.

That’s over 40 years of raising thousands of pounds for our chosen charities.

The object of this group is to have fun and enjoy ourselves in order to give our wonderful audiences a good night out, with comedy, fun and laughter due to our serious over/under acting skills!!!! The end result is a great donation for worthy local charities. We value our local community and feel immensely proud to be part of it.

We always welcome people who feel the same as we do.

Support Group for Parent and Carers of Children and Young People with Additional Needs 

As you are aware, Clare Keogh left KCN in November, and we have struggled to find someone to run the two support groups that she was facilitating. We have therefore decided that this support group will be combined with the Support Group for Parents and Carers of Children and Young People with ADHD. 

This support group is held on the Second Friday of every Month at the KCN Office and is run by Clare’s colleague Lily Bath.

The next meeting will be held on Friday 8th March from 10.00 – 12.00 at 418 Ewell Road, KT6 7HF 

We do hope that you will be able to join us, and look forward to seeing you on the 8th March.

Support Group for Carers of Adults with Asperger's Syndrome or Autism Spectrum Disorder

You will be pleased to know that Mollie Cooke will now be running the Asperger’s/ASD Support Group held here on the first Wednesday of every month.

The next meeting will be on Wednesday 6th March from 10.00am – 12.00 at 418 Ewell Road, KT6 7HF  

We apologise that we have not had a meeting since last year, but look forward to seeing you at the next group.

 

We are looking for Volunteers to facilitate all of our Support Groups.
