A BIG THANK YOU TO THE CHELSEA FLOWER SHOW!!

Thank you to the Chelsea Flower Show for the incredibly generous donation of flowers from their Massachusetts garden. With the help of our friends at Morgan Stanley who generously offered their volunteering support, we were able to use these flowers to transform the garden of the new Morgan Stanley Heart Hard and make it a vibrant and welcoming space for our children.

THIS MONTH

MARYLEBONE SUMMER FAYRE

SUNDAY 16TH JUNE

MARYLEBONE HIGH STREET

Kids Company are delighted to have been chosen as the Marylebone Summer Fayre's charity partner once again. The Fayre is everything you would expect from a traditional village fete food, drink, music, children's activities, craft stalls, a farmers' market, tombola and lashings of community spirit. There is a music stage featuring some of the most exciting up-and-coming acts in the country, some of London's finest restaurants and retailers and an amazing range of activities for the whole family. See more on the event here.

The Fayre raises lots of money for Kids Company in a variety of innovative ways: every penny spent at the Festival Bar in the Blue Zone goes directly to Kids Company, dozens of generous retailers, institutions and individuals are contributing a glittering array of prizes to the Summer Fayre tombola, which will be drawn on the day of the event and lots of our local retailers and restaurants are raising money for Kids Company by adding an extra 1 to the bill of any customers willing to participate. We look forward to seeing you there!
