Champions for Children is now live!

23rd June 2020

ONE WEEK ONLY! 12pm 23 June – 12pm 30 June

We are raising vital funds to help support children and families in London who are struggling to access nutritious, healthy food and social activities during the pandemic.

Every online donation you or your company makes during this week will be DOUBLED.

Last week, we learned that the Government is committed to funding Free School Meal vouchers for the summer holiday period only. Our research shows that a staggering 67% of eligible families have been unable to access them. In addition, there are over 200,000 children living in food insecure households who do not qualify and are therefore at risk of going hungry.

We can help to make a difference.

Our Kitchen Social programme is operating in some of London’s hardest hit communities. Since lockdown began, we have stepped up to provide 120,000 free, nutritious meals and 9,000 fun activity packs for children and young people from low-income backgrounds.

We have also adapted our employment and numeracy programmes to run fully online during the pandemic. The funds we raise from Champions for Children will also go towards helping us to continue to run our Count on Us, Access Aspiration and Creativity Works programmes in the next academic year.

With your support this week, we’ll be able to reach even more children and young people who may be slipping through the net.

Our Champions for Children campaign this year is supported by The Childhood Trust, and our friends at Waitrose Plc.
