The Kids' Cookery School (KCS) has been selected to take part in a Match Funding Challenge with the Garfield Weston Foundation and The Big Give – every pound you give will be doubled.

For the past 2 years KCS on Wheels has delivered hands on cookery workshops to over 6,000 children, young people and families all over London-.Their vision is for every borough in London and, ultimately, across the UK, to have a KCS on Wheels so that young people across the country can have a healthy future.

On the 5th, 6th and 7th December The Garfield Weston Foundation is offering to double any donations made through the Big Give website.

Donations will be pound for pound – every pound you give, the Garfield Weston Foundation will match. The donation needs to be made as close to 10am as possible on the 5th, 6th and 7th of December before the allocated money runs out.

£15 would enable one child to attend one cookery class with KCS on Wheels

£30 would enable one child to attend a 2.5 hour holiday cookery workshop at KCS base in Acton

£60 would enable a child to attend a 4 week programme of cookery workshops with KCS on Wheels

£200 would give 16 children from a special needs unit the opportunity to attend one KCS on Wheels session

£600 would allow the Van to visit one school, community group or children’s centre for a day and teach up to 48 children

£10,000 would provide the ingredients needed for one KCS on Wheels van for one year

£50,000 would purchase and equip a van, enabling KCS on Wheels to work with an increased number of hard to reach inner-city communities

Donations must be made online and only on 5th–7th December. Any donations not made through their personal link or within these dates will not be doubled. The maximum donation one individual or company can make and have matched is £3,000. The closer donations are made to 10am the more likely they are to have donations doubled.
