Discover. Donate. Double.

Make a difference to disadvantaged youngsters this Summer – donate to UKSA’s Summer Give Campaign between 11th-15th June and your donation will be doubled!

UKSA have teamed up with The Big Give and The Childhood Trust to make a difference to disadvantaged young children from London this Summer. Will you join us?

Young Londoners need our help

Nearly half of London children live in poverty in what is increasingly being considered one of the worst UK cities to bring up a family. Research shows that children from disadvantaged backgrounds are being left behind at school compared to their peers, and few have opportunities to learn and play outdoors in their school holidays. With no sign of improvement, we must do all we can to address this.

A summer to remember

Through the Summer Give, UKSA will provide free residential sailing and watersports courses to young Londoners during the Summer Holidays, offering them a chance to get outside, be part of a team, test their boundaries and develop valuable life skills. Each child will spend five days at our Academy on the Isle of Wight with all food, accommodation, evening activities and tuition included, offering them a summer experience to remember!

“Before my trip to UKSA I would always doubt what I could do now, I know to be positive and believe in myself!” George Green’s School pupil.

Matching every penny that you donate

We have a target of £12,000 to make this a reality for 30 disadvantaged children, and we need your help to reach that goal! From 12pm on 11th June until 12pm on 15th June, every donation made will be matched by our trustees and The Childhood Trust until we reach our target. This means that a donation of £20, once doubled, will not only pay for healthy food for one child for their whole stay, it will also pay for one of their peers. A donation of £200, with matched-funding, would pay for a whole five-day stay for one child.
