The hard work and dedication of volunteers and employees supporting South Kent Mind’s mental health work was celebrated at its annual meeting.
The event, staged on Tuesday, 28 September, at the Burlington Hotel, Folkestone, attracted an array of people working for and supporting South Kent Mind, including many local volunteers. This year’s meeting wanted to recognise some of South Kent Mind’s volunteers for the work they do supporting the charity. Five local volunteers were presented with awards for their outstanding achievement and one employee was presented with a Long Service Recognition Award.
The volunteers awarded were Martin, Anne, Emily, Lawrance and Claire, who was not able to attend the ceremony. South Kent Mind kindly recognised their achievement by also saying a few words of thanks to each person, as well as presenting them with a framed certificate in recognition of their services. In honour of her commitment to South Kent Mind, volunteer Anne was presented with the Pam Comber Award for Voluntary Service.

Michelle Godfrey received a Long Service Recognition Award for her outstanding 20 year contribution to South Kent Mind. Michelle has held a number of roles over the years including managing the resource centre in Folkestone. She was thanked by Trustee Sheridan Hammond for her commitment and dedication to the charity. All staff benefit from her listening ear and calm, supportive manner.
There were also displays of Mind member’s art work at the meeting and the launch of the corporate Ambassador scheme.
