The RiversMeet Team would like to personally thank ASDA once again for helping RiversMeet. Having a local provision such as Asda that understands us as a charity is heart-warming.

The continued support by whatever means has been on going and we would hope this is continued. The relationship between Gillingham Community Leisure Trust and Asda has grown from strength to strength and every year Asda pull out all the punches to support us.

The kind donations today will help raise vital funds to support our future, so please pop in and buy some tickets at Reception to see what you can win.

A massive thank you from myself - Alan Waistell General Manager - and we look forward to the next venture with Asda.
