Support KCS

How can I help?

KCS values the help of individuals, whether a donation of money, time or skills.

Making a donation

You can make a one-off or regular online donation by by pressing on the 'Make a Donation' button. This link will take you to the KCS Just Giving page, which is a secure site where you can arrange payment by credit or debit card. This facility will allow KCS to claim Gift Aid on your donation, providing that you are a UK tax payer.

If you would like to donate directly to KCS by sending a cheque (payable to The Kids' Cookery School Limited), then don't forget to complete a gift aid declaration, providing you are eligible. You can download a gift aid declaration form here.

Volunteering at KCS

Do you have skills that may be useful to KCS? Would you be able to spare some time to help out with classes in the kitchen or to lend a hand in the office? Please download, complete a volunteer form here and return this to KCS. Usually, we will invite you to KCS for an informal meeting to arrange volunteering work. Please note that if you are aged 18 or over, you will require a Criminal Records Bureau check, which we can organise for you.

Helping in other ways

Could you help in other ways? Do you know someone who would like to visit KCS? Could you offer the charity any advice, training or useful contacts? If so, please do not hesitate to contact by email
