Okay, since we are all on Lock Down, or supposed to be...

We thought we should explore who people's hero's are.

As we stated previously, one of ours is Helen Keller.

Put a picture up of your hero and tell us why they inspire you. What is it about the person you have picked that makes them so special in your opinion.

One of the most inspirational human beings ever to walk this Earth. And his "I have a Dream" speech is so relevant today as it was back in 1963...

"I say to you today, my friends, so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: 'We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.'

I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.

I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the colour of their skin but by the content of their character.

I have a dream today.

I have a dream that one day, down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of interposition and nullification; one day right there in Alabama, little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.

I have a dream today."

We like to think we can all be a community and as individuals, we all need to think beyond our own needs. We have each had to overcome huge adversity in our lives and we know that together we can get through this.

Helen Keller, one of our hero's, said this about the power of what a community can achieve.

Did you know that she was deaf and blind... What an amazing woman. She overcame huge adversity to achieve what she did, so let us overcome this adversity together.

“Alone, we can do so little; together, we can do so much” – Helen Keller

Today our CEO John Nicholson met with Ryan Harris from the Kent Invicta Chamber of Commerce and Mark Rose from Bemix.

This meeting has the potential to be the start of something huge for everyone involved with the three operations involved and the wider community.

We are incredibly proud that our campaign to bring hope and a future to those in most need can bring partners together to forge fantastic relationships.

What a FANTASTIC day it was on Sunday 1st March at Broome Park Hotel for our Murder Mystery Fund Raiser.

There are so many people to thank, but without TeeJay Voller the whole thing wouldn't have got started.

James Dand opened the event for us with an inspiring message about music and how it makes us feel.

Then Olivia Rogers performed three songs which were quite simply out of this world. I don't have the words to describe the emotions this young lady can bring out of someone. Our CEO John Nicholson was quite literally reduced to tears.

Moonstone Theatre Company provided us with the most entertaining Murder Mystery which left our team clueless, but then we were hampered by having John in our team.

Here are some pictures, courtesy of Julian Squiers of the event and our thanks to everyone who was there on the day and to those of you who donated online towards the raffle.

DEADLINE FOR BOOKING TO OUR EVENT IS 20:00 WEDNESDAY 19TH FEBRUARY - TOMORROW.

So, if you want a chance to see the most talented young singer Olivia Rogers perform Broome Park Hotel you had better book your tickets and quick.

This event is going to be simply amazing as not only do we have a "Murdey, Mystery" and a "Three Course Lunch", you get to witness first hand the start of a career that we feel will reach the very top.

This is a Sunday afternoon event, so even if you have to travel, you won't be back late. It finishes at 17:00 (5pm).

Come and support your community and be part of something very, very special.

It was so emotional when a young girls with Downs Syndrome sat behind the wheel of the car and said "I feel so normal"... Cue tears... Driving is so powerful and some people simply cannot afford to learn, which is why we exist. Join us on Sunday 1st March www.thecds.org.uk/murder-mystery/
