Client of the month - The Kids' Cookery School
The Kids' Cookery School gives children, young people and families the skills and knowledge needed to make informed, healthy food choices for themselves.
This week our Fundraising Team
volunteered with our client of the month, The Kids' Cookery School
(KCS). KCS is a registered charity that gives children, young people and
families the skills and knowledge needed to make informed healthy food
choices for themselves. The charity starts teaching children from the
very young age of 3 years upwards how to prepare and cook fresh food
"A really inspiring day. The kids were amazing and clearly learnt a lot! Truly valuable work from the staff at KCS" (Peter Gyoury, Senior Fundraising Consultant pictured above)
With an emphasis on health and nutrition, we teach children about the
dangers of increasing amounts of fat, sugar and salt being added to
almost all foods, especially fast food. Additionally the kids take their
homemade food home to share with family and friends so the message goes
We specialise in working with vulnerable children and young people that
live below the poverty line, who are disadvantaged and those with
special needs. Over 60% of all students KCS teaches are funded through
grants, donations, trusts and foundations. Without these funders, KCS
would not be able to support and help these children and their families
who wold otherwise not be able to access our services learning this
vital life skill.
KCS empowers all students to take control of their own
lives by understanding that what they eat and drink will make a lasting
impact on their lives and fitness, with a healthier future.
Dump the Junk Campaign
Get your friends and family to sign up to dump the junk! For 2 weeks
ask them to stop eating and drinking foods and drinks that are high in
fat, sugar and salt! You will be surprised once you start looking at,
counting and cutting out the amount of junk in the food you eat
Get people to sponsor you or sponsor yourself to change our eating and drinking habits.
After two weeks you will have saved money, feel better and surprised
yourself and your body at the amount of junk food we are unconsciously
All the money raised for KCS charity will go towards more children
learning to prepare and cook fresh food from scratch with an emphasis on
low fat, sugar and no salt.
