Announcement from Save the World Club

It is with regret that The Trustees have to announce that Save the World Club are no longer able to continue its mosaic activities due, in the main, to the lack of funding opportunities to enable the charity to continue this part of its offer.
 
Funding for the charity that has been secured so far this financial year and funding applications that are currently being considered all focus on our Young Place Shapers (YPS) which is a youth- led environmental stewardship resource for Kingston.  The programme aims to increase awareness, commitment and action on environmental and social sustainability issues in Kingston through enabling youth led volunteering and action.
