ALL IN A LOT OF GOOD CAUSES
Now in its eleventh 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, £150,418 has been given away to over 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, forms will be available here towards the end of March 2020. 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.
