CAN you speak Russian? A charity dedicated to providing support for victims of sexual abuse and rape from across north Kent needs the help of a Russian and English speaker.

Family Matters, in Wrotham Road, Gravesend, has been approached by a Russian woman who is the victim of a rape.

No experience in providing therapy is needed, though the person should expect to hear certain details about the attack.

If you can help, call Mr Gilbert on 01474 536 661.

Hole lot of work

TEN thousand potholes have been filled ahead of a county-wide blitz expected to start this month.

Kent Highway Service has 60 crews, 20 more than usual, working to restore roads wrecked by the cold snap.

In one week alone in late January, 6,000 were filled. The teams are fixing double the amount each week that was achieved last year.

Crews are taking a find-and-fix approach, working on areas with the greatest need.

More permanent work, for which the council has set aside an additional £1million, will begin in March.

Cycle challenge

FUNDRAISERS hope to raise £40,000 for a charity by cycling in Cuba.

Staff and crew from Kent Air Ambulance have signed up for the five-day 350km ride across the Caribbean island.

Places are still available for anyone wishing to join the team of 24 making the trip between November 14 and 22 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Kent Air Ambulance. For more information or if you would like to sign up, call Emma Getliffe at Life Cycle on 01303 862996 or email emma@lifecyclepromotions.co.uk.
