Community Activities

We build relationships and support our local community with projects and events


We talk to local community groups, small charities, religious groups, schools and businesses to research local needs (often inviting representatives of community groups or charities to Zoom Club meetings to find out more), Together we talk to people, understand what people need from their community and provide projects and support that works for them.

We provide the community, especially smaller organisations, with:

  • donations (ranging from £250 to £2,000 each)
  • support in kind, e.g. by providing toys, socks and Christmas gifts, and offer volunteer assistance, e.g.  by making items for sale and volunteering at foodbanks.
  • hands-on support with environmental projects.
  • celebration and recognition of adults who have achieved despite personal difficulties. 
  • fundraising by holding competitions, selling handmade items at local street markets, growing and selling large quantities of plants
  • a Kid'sOut day for disabled and disadvantages children.
  • visits to Kingston streets at Christmas with a COVID-safe Christmas sleigh.
