Hello everyone!

We want to say a massive thank you to everyone that has donated towards the scholarship! We have raised £9,700 so far, which is enough to offer nine scholarships! However, we are determined to offer the scholarship to ten students and we want that ONE more student to benefit from this life-changing experience. Therefore, we have extended fundraising for just over a week in order to reach our target! Please watch the video below and hear from Tracy, a Kingston2Cape scholarship recipient who shares her experience on how her experience in Cape Town has changed her perception as a student and an individual in society.


Please continue to share the word amongst friends, family and social media using the hashtag #Kingston2CapeTown!”

Hello All,

Huge thanks for your support and donations so far. We are well on our way to achieving our target. We need your help in one last push to promote the project.

We have five days to raise £1,700 and take us to our target amount. Please can you promote the link on your Social Networks https://spsr.me/ywLs and encourage people to donate by sharing the importance of the project.

Go #Kingston2CapeTown together we can make a difference in lives of BME students!!

Many apologies, maths was never my strong point and I got over excited. We have raised £1230 and need £3770 to reach our £5000 target.

It is a little confusing as the overall figure that appears on the right includes the alumni match funding.

Many apologies as we still have a little way to go but, we will get there!!
