WHO WE ARE SUPPORTING FOR THE 2023 EVENT
2023 TW Soapbox Race - for the first time EVER, we will be inviting our racing teams to raise money for any of their chosen charities. With the 2023 TW Soapbox asking for a minimum pledge of £250 each to their long-standing charity, Hospice in the Weald, racers can then raise as much as they like for whomever they like afterwards! TW Soapbox will also be supporting Nourish Community Foodbank, with a food bank on the day, as well as the racing schools having their own food banks in school prior and post-event. As well as these two amazing charities, the TW Soapbox team and organisers Chatty Hatter will be personally supporting The Pickering Cancer

Hospice in the Weald provides care for patients with a terminal illness, and those important to them, in West Kent and Northern East Sussex. Each year Hospice in the Weald raises £8 million to fund its services, and all care is offered completely free of charge.

The Pickering Cancer Drop-in Centre

Nourish Community Food Bank
"Help when it’s needed most"
Nourish is our local food bank. We are the caring face of our community. The support we offer to people across the whole borough of Tunbridge Wells and South Tonbridge is more than a bag of food, it’s a helping hand for people. The people we help are just like you and me - they come from all walks of life and from different parts of our local area. What they have in common is that life has dealt them a blow and they need support to get back on their feet.
Mental Health Resource
Providing safe spaces & person-centred
mental health support in our community.
Mental Health Resource is a local charity, operating across Kent, which supports people who have complex and enduring mental health conditions.
