Make a donation this Christmas and have it doubled!
We’re raising money for a new Head of our Love to Learn education team, so that we can continue to change the lives of young refugees in Wandsworth. Would you please make a donation from midday 3rd December here? We’re doing this in partnership with The Big Give, The Childhood Trust and Francis Holland School and YOU!
As you well know leadership is so vital to the success of anything in life!!! We’re in the middle of a General Election campaign and it is clear that the leadership of the political parties is a hotly contested aspect of the race for No.10. We are looking to raise the funds so we can hire an experienced manager to lead our high performing Love to Learn education team and continue to change the lives of young refugees.
Love to Learn
Our Love to Learn education team has, for the last 15 years, provided a range of high-quality education services for 250+ refugee children, young people and their families, living in poverty, in Wandsworth. We provide befriending and mentoring support, advocacy and casework, homework clubs, GCSE study groups and plenty of holiday trips and activities. In doing so we aim to broaden their educational experiences, improve educational outcomes and confidence, and support their aspirations.
The Head of Love to Learn will be responsible for the strategic direction and management of the team, increasing our successful fundraising and ensuring that we provide the best outcomes for the young people we work with, in an increasingly difficult environment for refugees and asylum seekers.
We’re taking part again in The Big Give’s Christmas Challenge, which runs from Tuesday 12pm (midday) 3rd December until 10th December. It’s in conjunction with #GivingTuesday (check out social media with this hashtag. It’s antidote to #BlackFriday). The beauty of The Big Give is that your generous donation will be doubled for one week only. So if you donate £20 to KLS then The Big Give matches your donation with £20 = doubling your donation to Love to Learn to £40 + Gift Aid. Any amount can be matched to help support the education of local refugee children.
Double Your Donation for Love to Learn
Please make a donation here, for one week only 3rd-10th December, and have it doubled.
Thank you very much in advance for your support. It will make a massive difference to the education of refugee young people here in Battersea and Wandsworth.
If you’d like to find out more about our Love to Learn team and (even better) come and visit then please contact Aaron Barbour on 020 7223 2845 and [email protected]. I look forward to hearing form you.
