ALL IN A LOT OF GOOD CAUSES
Now in its tenth year, Kew Midsummer Fete has become a much-loved local highlight, offering a fun family day out in the lovely setting of Kew Green. It’s run entirely by volunteers and all the operating profits are donated to local good causes – since it started in 2010, £131,228 has been given away to a total of 34 charities in the Richmond area, in amounts ranging from hundred to thousands of pounds.
If yours is a local registered charity and you would like to apply for a Kew Fete donation, please download the information and application below (available from - the opening date for applications is Tuesday 2nd April). The committee aims for each year’s awards to feature a range of charities offering different benefits to the local community, and successful applications tend to be for specific projects or purchases rather than for general running costs.
