Kingston Eco-Op is fundraising and needs your help!
On the day of the sponsored walk, we had sweltering heat, but we still walked 2 MILES in and around Kingston, dressed up in our beach wear and carrying a lilo. Many of our clients have mobility issues but still kept walking the full distance: they were amazing! We even stopped by at Cafe Jax and they have taken one of our collection pots - thank you! Please, if you have a couple of pounds to spare, place them in the pot or click on this link and sponsor our walkers: HERE
Many thanks - The Eco-op team
We are excited to announce that we will be running a Fundraising Day on Tuesday 7th August 10:00-12:30.
Many of our clients do not get the opportunity to go on holiday, and often the Eco-op trip to the seaside is their only getaway in the year. With budget cuts in place, we need YOUR help to get us to the seaside! You can do this in one of four ways:
- Join us on the sponsored walk as a volunteer walker, and collect sponsorship from all your family and friends. Leaving The Basement at 10:00 and attired in fancy dress (beach theme - bring your bucket and spade!), we will walk through Kingston and around Canbury Park Gardens. This is a distance that is a big challenge for many of our clients, but one they are excited to face. By being there as a walker alongside them, you can motivate them to achieve a personal target as well as the group one.
- Come visit us for a drink, cake and natter in the Drop-In Coffee Morning. If you do not have time or energy to join the walk, some of the clients will be running a Drop-In Coffee Morning in the Basement from 11:00-12:30. Donations welcome as the clients serve homemade baked items (healthy, or otherwise!) with a drink and a smile. Just drop in, relax, have a chat, and get to know our group and what we do.
- Businesses along Old London Road and Clarence Street. Please let us know if you would like us to visit you for donations, or drop off a collection pot at your business whilst on the sponsored walk. When we visit, we will grab a photo with your staff at your business (in our finest fancy dress) to share on social media and thank you for your support.
- Donate your hard cash! If you cannot make our Fundraising day, you can definitely still help. Visit our Localgiving page HERE and add your share to our target of £600 - every little bit will help us get there.
Our clients are taking Steps to the Seaside - will you join us?
