Our activities reach 45,000 children and young people across Maidstone, Medway and Swale but to continue maintaining and expanding our diverse range of activities, we need your help! We are funded entirely by voluntary donations and our activities could not continue without your generosity.
Although we are unable to acknowledge all of our generous supporters here, we are so grateful to all the individuals, community groups, businesses and charitable organisations that support our work, including:
Maidstone Lions and KCC Cllr Paul Cooper for their contribution to our tech fund enabling us to record and edit our programme of digital Collective Worship
All the individuals who purchased Christmas cards last year – you raised £127!
Chatham Maritime Trust for their grant which will help us provide CAP Kids Money Courses to schools across the Medway Towns.
There are lots of different ways you can fundraise for us from shopping online, organising a tea party or taking part in an adrenaline-fuelled challenge. Whatever you choose to do, you can be assured that the money you raise will be making a huge difference to our work in the local community as we seek to inspire the next generation to explore Christianity.
This year we are excited to be planning our first ever charity golf day. We anticipate that this event will take place in the autumn. If you would like to be kept up to date about this of future events, please sign up to our events newsletter.
We are excited to have the opportunity to take part in the range of events organised by the KM Charity Team. These are sponsored events with 70% of the money you raise coming to us and the remaining 30% covering event costs and contributing towards the KM Charity Team’s work with schools.
