Charity

Each year, from nominations by local residents, the Kew Sparkle Committee selects a charity to support from the proceeds of Kew Sparkle.  The aim is to raise the profile of the charity through a stall at Kew Sparkle as well as raising money through the charity raffle.

How to apply to be Kew Sparkle’s chosen charity

The charity is selected by the Kew Sparkle Committee on the following criteria:

  • Nomination by a local resident

  • Location - proximity to Kew

  • How much the charity helps local residents in Kew

  • The area of activity in so much as we like to support different charity areas each year

  • Whether the charity has the resources to help on the night

 

If you wish to nominate a charity, please email.
