KSL was one of the proud sponsors of Futurestars Gala Dinner and Auction to raise money for their minibus appeal.
The Futurestars Charity Project provides an exciting education-through-sports programme, working with schools in both Ghana and Togo. The charity delivers physical education and sports coaching, as well as assisting in the refurbishment of schools, so as to create safe and secure learning environments. The children who attend the Futurestars schools come from some of the poorest communities, many of whom have had no access to physical education or sports at school.
The charity has recently launched an appeal to raise money for two minibuses that will enable their students in both Ghana and Togo to be transported safely. It also means that activities need not be limited by locality. Students will also be able to attend events such as sporting festivals, and away matches, widening their horizons and aspirations.
The Futurestars Gala Dinner and Auction at Kesgrave Hall last Friday night was a huge success. Sponsors were asked to pledge £2k to buy a seat on each bus and as a thank you were given a table for 10 at the gala dinner. The event raised over £35,000 from sponsors including KSL. A further £45,000 was raised through the auction. The total of £80,000 funds raised will make a huge impact on the minibus appeal.
“What a great night!” said Titus Bramble, Futurestars Ambassador and Lead Coach. “A massive thank you to everyone who came and supported us last night and helped us raise money.”
