Do you share a vision to bring all of King’s Cross together – north, west, east and south?
There are lots of wonderful community groups in this area, not all of them are able to access the huge resources being poured in. There are lots of individuals with brilliant ideas to improve their bit of King’s Cross, not many of them feel able to take the next step. Do you want to support this KX community based activity by unlocking all that potential out there? Here’s one way you could really make an impact.
King’s Cross Community Projects is a fledgling charitable trust. October will see its green sculpture project launched. Yet there is so much more the trust could do. It was set up to enable the green sculpture, but at the time the founders felt setting up a charity to run just one project was a waste. They’d tried unsuccessfully to get their project hosted by an existing local organisation. This experience led them to set up the trust with aims wide enough to be able to host and support a wide range of projects.
With the green sculpture now complete, now is the ideal time for the trust to actively look for more local projects it could support.
There are currently five trustees and a voluntary manager. The charity is inviting new trustees to join, could this be you? The time commitment isn’t great; most of its activities are carried out through email and meetings are kept to a minimum. New trustees would ideally live, work or study in King’s Cross (hale a mile from the station) bring knowledge of community based organisations, lots of enthusiasm for community activities and a desire to shape the trust for the good of King’s Cross in the years to come.
Our catchment area together with a list of community based and other organisations can be seen on the King’s Cross Google map.
