Your chance to become KM Group's Charity of the Year
Could your organisation be the next KM Group Charity of the Year? Recipients benefit from direct fund-raising support and have their profiles raised through KM Group newspapers, kmfm radio and websites.
The Kent and Medway Charity Team is seeking nominations for each of the local areas covered by the KM Group.
Editors in every community will choose a charity to support throughout the year with fund-raising events and publicity in newspapers, radio and on both the Kent Messenger’s websites and the KM Charity Team’s sites.
Tell us about your charity or organisation and why you feel you would benefit from being the editor’s choice and let us know how you would make the most of this opportunity.
What you can expect
The KM Charity Team will stage a variety of activities and events across Kent to support KM Group charities of the year. Events include:
- Fund-raising. We will stage brain and brawn challenges such as abseil, water zorbing races, record breaking Big Quiz nights and our annual dragon boat race. All of these could earn your charity funds.
- Profile. KM Group news teams will provide publicity through KM Group newspapers, websites and kmfm radio stations.
What we expect
The KM Charity Team is hoping for active charitable partners who will make the most of the opportunity being named as Charity of Year will present. Charities nominating themselves for consideration should consider:
- How they can help promote the events staged by the KM Charity Team directly to their own members, supporters and corporate sponsors. How they support the fund-raising events on the day.
- It is a condition of being named KM Charity of the Year that the benefitting cause display the KM Group logo on their website, promotional posters and, optionally, letterheads at the next re-print.
Type of projects considered
Currently editors are open to all suggestions and ideas but the key issue is location. The project you wish to be supported must be within the circulation area of the KM Group newspaper you are applying for support.
Applications are now open for 2013. At the end of October an evaluation panel will meet to make the selection ensuring the Charity of the Year for each area is notified in the first week of November. The Charity of the Year period runs for the calendar year.
