April 2018 - NEW HOLIDAYS AND MAGGIES CENTRES OPPORTUNITIES:

The Trust are very pleased to have been offered the use of a holiday home in the Lake District. More details to follow very soon.

We are in conversation with Maggie's Centres in Manchester to signpost families to us. We hope to be able to provide Lake District holidays by late 2018.

March 2018 - PRIX CLARINS AWARD 2018:

We are thrilled and proud that our very own Sharon King has been nominated for the Prix Clarins 2018, a prestigious award for an inspirational woman who is improving the lives of the next generation and beyond through an innovative charity or initiative she has founded! A perfect fit! The winner of the award will receive £30,000 towards the project. Fingers crossed!

February 2018 - MARY ERSKINE SCHOOL, YOUTH AND PHILANTHROPY INITIATIVE:

We are delighted to welcome students from Edinburgh’s Mary Erskine School on board with raising awareness about, and potentially £3,000 for JKT.

Five pupils from the school have selected the trust to promote in a presentation competition, as part of the Youth and Philanthropy initiative, raising awareness among young people about philanthropy and their local community.

The group will be responsible for directing a £3,000 YPI Grant to a local charity, and the most deserving teams go on to present at a school-wide final where a panel of judges determine which team will win a £3,000 grant for their chosen charity.

We wish the team all the best with their campaign. And a massive thank you for choosing us!

February 2018 - JKT LAUNCH NIGHT:

The Jasper King Trust official launch night at Summerhall in Edinburgh on February 24th was an amazing success, raising a spectacular £1,556 from door donations and raffle ticket sales….and an extra £500 in #WAVEatDAVE campaign sponsorship.

Heartfelt thanks to all involved in making it such a great night of music, memories and moving stories of how the JKT is already making such a difference to families facing a cancer diagnosis. What a brilliant official launch for the Trust!

The winner of the Harvest Moon Holidays raffle prize kindly donated it to the trust for use by one of the families we are supporting. Thank you!

The winner of the Scottish rugby ball signed by winning Scotland vs England Squad also donated their prize for auction – with all proceeds to the Trust!

The auction closed on 9th March with a further £400 being donated to the Trust.
