Donations With A Difference is a charitable grant-making trust (reg. charity no. 1157927) that works to alleviate physical impairment, poor mental health, and homelessness in Kent. We run many events and competitions throughout the year to raise money to fund our grants. In 2019 we raised over £34K of a total £146K since our inception. With your help, we aim to continue generating grants to those in Kent that need our help.
If you feel you can help us achieve this by doing something different, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
