  • Need


    Kingston WelCare is a collection of individuals from the community supporting the community. Together we can act as a thread to keep families united and the community connected.
    Founded 1890, Kingston WelCare has been a consistent local presence in the Kingston borough for numerous years. Always helping parents with their growing families. We see our small changes having an enormous impact for the 100's of children that have known WelCare as a home away from home.


    All funds will be used directly to achieve the aim of the project and Charity.

    Team members: Dave Rea, Shirani Park, Charles Champion, Richard Coburn, Nick Aplas, Richard Ainsley, Colin Moxon, Steve Curtis, Bruce Park, Mike Labrand, Nathan Friel, Matthew Booker, Matthew Raynor, Susie Norman, Juliet Raynor, Ben Cox.
