Councillor Margaret Thompson, Kingston’s Mayor between May 2019 and April 2021, recently presented a cheque for £19,853 to KCIL and Oxygen, money raised during Margaret’s tenure by the Mayor’s Charitable Trust. The money will be split equally between the two charities.

Jason Lamont, KCIL’s CEO, says –

It was an honour for Kingston Centre for Independent Living to be chosen as the Mayor’s charity of the year for 2019-2020, alongside Oxygen, and all of us at KCIL extend our utmost appreciation and thanks for the amount raised. 

Thanks to the pandemic cancelling almost all of the planned events we were extended as the Mayor’s chosen charity for a further year, and we were amazed at the inventiveness and tenacity shown by the Mayor and her team in raising funds for the two charities. 

These funds will go some way towards our 2022 programme of community activities and events, providing support and wellbeing to isolated and disabled members of our community.
