Why is Love Kingston so important?
Supplied by: Elaine Miller - Love Kingston
The Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames is a changing landscape, with a soon to be unprecedented growth in population. The recent economic downturn, coupled with reduced government and local council spending, is putting considerable pressure on frontline services. Over the last three years, Love Kingston has been successful in establishing a grassroots, place based, fundraising model. We’re now looking to the future and building the Love Kingston endowment fund, which will provide a sustainable source of income to support the changing needs of the community forevermore. Why might you give through us? • You can choose where your money goes and see it making a difference • You can support a vast range of projects from grassroots initiatives to social enterprises and large established charities • You can donate from as little as £1 a month!
What do our supporters say?
