We are Beams are a fantastic local charity based in Swanley. The grant we have provided will enable them to bring their expertise and services into Sevenoaks. The clinics will be run out of House in the Basement and provide much needed support to local families with children who have special educational needs or other disabilities.

The Kent Youth Jazz Orchestra will once again be coming to Sevenoaks with the support of STC. Access to the arts for our young people is so important. Young, local musicians will be able to participate in this brilliant Jazz workshop scheduled for 25th June for free.”
