We are a small, informal club who meet every other Thursday morning at 8:00am at Cobtree Manor Golf club
Our main purpose is to serve others where we can. We achieve this by raising funds through a variety of events and giving our time with hands on support.
Whilst not a big club, we are very much doers and have made a difference to many people and causes which include international appeals, local causes and charities.
From marshalling at events and running stalls at local fetes to helping eradicate polio and providing safe drinking water through international projects, our work is varied and valued.
There is no formal commitment required to attend each weekly meeting or to help with every project we undertake. Our members help out as best they can, when they can and together we achieve results. We always welcome new members, come along and meet us. There is no obligation, however, if you like what we do, join us and be part of a team that gives a little back.
Meet the Members
I'm Clare. I am a Virtual Assistant, but I also have a background in Counselling and Social Work. I enjoy keeping fit and try to work out as many times a week as my schedule allows. I'm also the Secretary for a Charity called the Kent Kidney Patients Association. I have only been with Dawn Patrol for a short time, but I'm enjoying being part of such an inspiring, active and genuinely lovely group of people.
My name is Lu. I am a translator (English/Spanish). I have only been involved with Dawn Patrol for a short while, but already feel like a lifetime member. Everyone has been very welcoming and friendly. The members' zest for life and dedication to the Maidstone community inspires me on a daily basis and helps me to fulfill my own passion in volunteering. I am Chairman of the Kent Kidney Patients Association, which being a kidney patient myself, is a charity very close to my heart.
