Summer Give 2023, save the date

We’re delighted to announce that we have once again been selected to take part in the new Big Give’s Double your Donation to raise money for our summer programme, giving children from refugee backgrounds the chance to explore a new horizon. The ‘Champions for Children’ Summer Give will run from 6 until 20 June 2023. Please save the date in your calendar to support us (6 – 20 June).

Please save the date in your calendar to support us (6 – 20 June).

This year, more than ever, as local families struggle with the cost of living, our young people deserve a summer of fun and friendship, with the chance to explore their new surroundings and future opportunities.

All donations will be matched by our generous sponsors: The Childhood Trust and Francis Holland School.

KLS Summer Holidays

KLS has been providing summer fun for refugee children and young people in Battersea for nearly 20 years. The programme is entirely reliant on the generosity of people like you. For the whole of August, children and young people aged 4-21 will enjoy jam-packed days trying out a range of fun activities, including sports, cooking and craft. They will be outside in the summer sunshine in local parks and further afield: for many, KLS day trips are the first time they might see the sea or ride a rollercoaster. Staff will work with the older groups to explore their interests and pathways to further education and careers. Summer 2022 was a huge success, with over 200 children getting outside and getting involved. We would like to thank everyone who supported us.

Please save the date for Tuesday 6th June 2023 to ‘Double your Donation’.

Thank you as always.
