We are having a party!

It will be KCN’s 25th Birthday party and Kate Dudley, our CEO, will also be stepping down after almost 10 years in post.

We are celebrating on Thursday 26th September at the Kingsgate Church, 161a Clarence Street, Kingston, KT1 1QT from 7.00pm until 11.00pm.

There will be food, drinks, singing and a disco and we are hoping as many of you will join us to celebrate our 25th anniversary but also to thank Kate for the wonderful work she has done for KCN. Even if you can only pop in for a quick nibble and a drink – please do as we would love to see you

Please let Vanessa know if you will be coming so we can make sure we have enough food and drink for everyone.

RSVP Vanessa Mooneeapen or 020 3559 2824
