Good causes around the county have been chosen to become the KM Charity of the Year 2015.
Newspaper editors from across Kent have selected the group or organisation they will be supporting throughout 2015.
Charities and good causes were invited to bid for the title in nine areas of the county covered by the Kent Messenger Group. However, this year we have 11 successful candidates as the Malling edition of the Messenger has selected its own Charity of the Year and of course Kent Online has once again picked a charity to champion in 2015.
