Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we have had to cancel or postpone a number of planned fundraising events. This is having a serious knock on effect to the amount of money we can raise, which will impact on the size and number of grants we will be able to provide local charities and community groups in the future.
So we need your help with fundraising and there are all kinds of innovative ways to raise money online:
• Sponsored activities
• Online concerts
• Skill sharing
• Email and social media campaigning.
We are also seeking gregarious, outgoing people to be ambassadors for Love Kingston to promote our cause.
If you have a great fundraising idea Please get in touch with Danielle O’Shaughnessy, Community Engagement and Development Manager firstname.lastname@example.org.
