History of the KM Charity Team
The Kent and Medway Charity Team was founded in 2001 with the aim of supporting and promoting walking bus and green travel initiatives at primary schools. At the start the organisation was called the Kent and Medway Walking Bus Group. It changed its name and logo in 2009 to reflect the broader range of services delivered.
Today green travel to school and children’s health and wellbeing is still at the heart of the charity’s activities but now it has a widened remit delivering other services to support schools – and also to provide support to PTA groups and charities to support their fundraising.
The charity works alongside the KM Group, Kent’s biggest multi-media publisher, to support the organisation’s charitable work whenever the objectives of the two organisations are shared.
