We’re delighted to have partnered with Amazon Smile, so you can support people and families in need who use our community hub in the heart of Kingswood every time you shop – and at no extra cost to you.
What is Amazon Smile?
Amazon Smile is operated by Amazon, so provides the same simple online shopping experience as Amazon.com. The only difference is that when you activate smile.amazon.co.uk before making a purchase, the Amazon Smile Foundation donates 0.5% of the net purchase price of eligible products to K@M4E when you choose us as your charity.
What do you need to do?
It’s really easy to do. If you already have an Amazon account just head to smile.amazon.co.uk and select Kingsmeadow @ Made Forever as your chosen charity. Then just start shopping, knowing that as you do, you’re making a real difference to people and families in need in Kingswood.
Millions of products are eligible. As you shop, you’ll see ‘Eligible for smile.amazon.co.uk’ on product detail pages. Your shopping experience will remain the same and there’s no additional cost to you. Just as importantly there’s no cost to the charity either!
Consider bookmarking the page to make it even easier for you when you return to shop online. Once you’ve selected us Amazon will remember your choice for the next time you shop.
Thank you for supporting people and individuals in our community – and happy shopping!
1st-7th June was Volunteers’ Week. Volunteers’ Week is a time to say thanks for the contribution millions of people make across the UK through volunteering. We decided to celebrate our INCREDIBLE volunteers and thank them for their huge support, particularly throughout Covid-19. Their great contribution helps us continue to support and serve our community. We had a small celebration on Friday 4th June and gave our volunteers medals and certificates- because they are all winners.
One of our volunteers said “I absolutely enjoy volunteering here and I do it because I want to. I have never done a job in my life that I truly love like this one; the atmosphere, the people… it’s just wonderful.” Thank you again everybody.
Your Local Community Wellbeing Hub, based in Fisher Road, Kingswood, has been awarded a grant of £443,000 over five years from The National Lottery Community Fund, enabling the Hub to maintain and develop its vital services to the community.
K@M4E community family gratefully say “Thank You” to the National Lottery players and the National Lottery Community Fund for their tremendous support.
