Kenward Trusts’ Recovery Festival goes from strength to strength
28th May 2017 /
On Friday 30th September, Kenward Trust held it’s second Recovery Festival at Kenward House Conference rooms in Yalding. The event was a celebration of the recovery journey our residents have been on through our programmes.
Over 50 men and women attended the Recovery Festival which is designed to share the success stories from residents who have gone through the programmes offered at Kenward Trust through their different projects.
Each person has a unique story but they came together in groups to demonstrate their journey and in some cases perform a sketch that brought it to life.
Lynn Hyder, Kenward’s Head of Events, Fundraising & Volunteer Engagement said:
“It was an incredible day and the stars of the show were definitely our residents who are an inspiration to us all and clearly demonstrated why we all work so hard to support them.”
David Philpott, Kenward Trust's Chief Executive said:
'The success of the 2nd Annual Recovery Festival at Kenward can be measured not only in terms of the number of residents and staff who took part, but more importantly, by the stories and testimonies of those who have lived drink and drug free since they moved on into our second and third stage housing projects. We were inspired, we were humbled but most of all, we were all encouraged by seeing first hand, just how important the work we do is'
