Tesco Grovegreen Maidstone selected HearSay Charitable Trust to benefit from the sale of second hand books in store during the month of October 2023.
HearSay was very grateful to receive the procedes of the sale of the books from Tina Deveron.
With the weather set fine for the day, families gathered to celebrate in the sunshine for Hearsay Trust. Little Fant Farm, Maidstone provided a super venue and with refreshments and face painting for the children - and some of the adults! Much fun was had by all.
The samba band created a wonderful rhythm and atmosphere for the afternoon's activities.
Many thanks to everyone who came and enjoyed the day and special thanks too for the very generous raffle prizes, kindly donated by local organisations.

HearSay has completed Crossroads support groups, facilitated by two of our counsellors for the Young Carers Group and for a Parents Support group, both of which were successful. Crossroads wish to continue the parents support group.
The HearSay Trust is currently providing a Parent Support service to Bower Grove School facilitated by one of Hearsay’s counsellors for the next academic year.
Bower Grove school reports that parents attending have found the group very useful, “allowing them to talk and meet fellow parents”
According to Bower Grove school
“Some of the parents have set up links and have met with their children outside school for coffee.
Thus, strengthening their own support network.”
The HearSay trust is very grateful to the Lawson Endowment Foundation for Kent for their recent award. All members of the trust wish to convey their sincere thanks for the foundations contribution which enables the trust to continue its service for Maidstone and the surrounding areas.
HearSay recently undertook a pilot project with a parent’s support group at a local school in Maidstone at the school’s request. The school caters for children with additional educational needs, such as Autism, Asperges, ADHD, behavioural difficulties and mental health problems.
The group was facilitated by one of Hearsay’s counsellors.
HearSay has been requested to provide another support group during the next academic year starting in September 2022.
Hearsay acknowledges the benefit of parent support groups, which can empower parents make changes and a difference, enabling their children achieve their full potential and improve the relationship that they can have with their children.
