About The Caitlin Hurcombe Kickstart Fund

Caitlin�s Kickstart Award is a UK Shropshire-based charity, founded in 2001. We give financial help to applicants in their first year of further/higher education.

The present Award is a gift of �1,000 to winners; runners-up receive a cash grant of between �100-�500. The Award is not available for a gap year.

As of 2017 we have gifted over �40,000.

In 2014, CKA established two associated Awards:

The Mary Hayter Memorial Award is offered nationally to students with a disability who are engaged in full or part time education and who would benefit from a cash grant to help with project-related expenses. The first recipient of the Mary Hayter Award of �1,000 is Imogen Godwin, who required a Braille-dedicated computer for her course work. Applicants are invited to apply personally. You may also nominate a candidate for this Award.

Caitlin�s Kickstart Award for Outstanding Achievement is an occasional award offered to applicants/recipients/supporters past and present of Caitlin�s Kickstart Award. Applicants are invited to apply personally. You may also nominate candidates for this Award. The first CKA Outstanding Achievement Award of �1,000 went to Sophie Hayter.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
