Love Kingston supports communities in the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames, now and in the future.
We are a fundraising project and provide a platform for local philanthropic giving. As well as giving grants yearly to local charities to help them continue their vital services, Love Kingston is building up a legacy fund, which can be used to give grants on an ongoing basis into the future.
Our fundraising takes place at multiple levels, through small scale community fundraising such as local events and sponsorship activity, to working with philanthropic individuals and corporates.
Everyone has something they can offer Love Kingston, whether it’s baking a cake for a cake sale, hosting an event, or discussing setting up a fund under your name. We can help you find a way to support your community.
See www.lovekingston.org.uk for further information.
The Buddy Scheme is a befriending scheme in Kingston that matches volunteers with a "buddy" with a learning disability, or on the Autistic Spectrum. The "buddy pair" then meets on a regular basis to take part in leisure activities together.
