Announcement – Change of Trustee

we are delighted to announce that Darren Taylor has agreed to join the board. Darren has already shown a huge dedication to KOAC since we were founded and has been one of the biggest supporters of KOAC since we first formed.


Gift Aid Awareness Day

Today is Gift Aid Awareness Day! So, what does that actually mean?
Well, according to estimates in the UK an approximate £560m of potential Gift Aid goes unclaimed each year; which is a staggering figure. For a small charity like ours, which is totally reliant on donations, this can make a huge difference. As an example, gift aid on our recent World Record Attempt meant we generated an additional £2,000+ from people ticking the box on the donations; which will allow us to help 4-5 more families. A massive impact!


Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) Report

Recently the first ever dedicated report into charitable giving in Wales was published by the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF).

The report is useful to us, because here at Kicking Off Against Cancer we like to remain up to date with current issues that affect our industry.
This means we can stay ahead of any regulation changes, adapt our internal processes and effectively deliver on our ‘Charitable Purpose’.
