Over £5,500 paid to Kids Club Kampala from voluntary student levy.

Since May I have accumulated £1231 for the children’s charity Kids Club Kampala (KCK) in Uganda from the voluntary levy on my courses. Including my matching the levy means that today I was able to donate  £2462 to KCK, but it gets even better. I delayed making the payment so it coincided with The Big Give Christmas Challenge which again equally matches contributions to charities in the scheme, so KCK actually received (including gift aid) a stonking £5539.50. KCK tell me that this means they can provide 27,000 nutritious meals for the children of the Kampala slums.  Previous levy payments since adopting KCK about two and a half years ago total £6728. So including the Big Give contribution we have sent KCK £ 12,367.

So to all those who contributed to the levy in the past few years a big thanks from me and an even bigger thanks from the children of the Ugandan Kampala slums, you’re great!

PS If you want to boost your charity donation via The Big Give the Christmas Challenge ends on 10th December, assuming your chosen charity is registered with the Big Give.
