Our Champions for Children Summer Give is now open! All donations made via THIS LINK between 14 – 21 June are automatically DOUBLED, so your contribution will make twice the impact. Please donate HERE – when you donate £10 we will get £20!
We’re delighted to have been selected as one of The Childhood Trust’s UK-wide charities taking part in this summer’s Big Give from 14 – 21 June.
Our long-standing summer programme for local refugee children can only go ahead thanks to generous donations from our supporters. Like 36% of charities surveyed in the London Charity Survey, we are reliant on extra support to meet current levels of demand.
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, craft and, for the first time, the chance to express themselves in guided drama sessions. Lunch is included everyday, free of charge – this is a good way to help families who are already concerned and cutting back on food in response to the rising cost of living.
Where possible, 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.
Thanks to the generosity of people like you, last year’s programme was a huge success, with over 200 children getting outside and getting involved. Daniel, aged 8, came on a trip to the beach – his first visit to to the sea! He told us:
“I loved taking the coach and going swimming in the sea, it was very cold, but so much fun and I wish I could go there every day”.
With just a couple of clicks, you can help us reach our target of £20,000. The great news is that thanks to The Childhood Trust and The Topinambour Trust, all donations are automatically doubled between 14-21 June, so your contribution will make twice the impact and double the fun.
Please donate HERE – when you donate £10 we will get £20!
Don’t forget Gift Aid, which adds a further 25%
A BIG Thank You goes to our funding partners The Topinambour Trust and The Childhood Trust for supporting our ‘Champions for Children’ summer programme!
Many thanks for your support.
P.S. Please share this with your friends, family, neighbours, colleagues and everyone you can think of and help us to reach our target! Thank you.
