We charge a small fee of £20 for young people, £50 for individuals and £150-250 for an organisation who wishes to put forward up to five of their employees.
What do you use the membership fee for?
The fees are used to manage and promote the Club with any financial surplus ploughed back into community projects in the Medway Towns as agreed by the management committee.
