Tim Jones, director at London Welsh Developments Ltd, is currently in the process of setting up the LWD Foundation with business partner, Barrie, where they have decided to raise the money initially to help build a school in Kenya.
With an aim to facilitate one project per year, the LWD Foundation will focus on delivering facilities and infrastructure to the developing world. The LWD Foundation also intends to
team up with some local charities in the UK.
The LWD Foundation and Kenya project was born from a chance meeting with an amazing person who established the Volunteers Foundation in 2011. Since then, the inspiring individual has set up a school which educates 150 children. With the workforce and skill-set behind London Welsh Developments, the team are hoping
to help build a new school which will accommodate an extra 150 children.
An opportunity to give back, the LWD Foundation will set out to help children brought into this world under difficult circumstances through no fault of their own. The goal is to raise
£100,000 to help fund the build.
As such, Tim Jones, director of London Welsh Developments and wife Lisa have decided to sell their family home in a non-conventional way to raise enough funds. The London House Raffle will see one lucky winner crowned the owner of a two-bed house in Hampton Hill, south-west London, with entries sold at just £5 each. Every penny that is made over and above the cost of the prize will be donated to the Kenya project.
The London House Raffle will also be complemented by a series of small fundraising events to reach the company’s target. London Welsh Development Site
Tim Jones says: “Hopefully we can raise more than enough money for the Kenya project and have some left over to put towards our next project in 2019. We hope this is the first step in a long and very fulfilling journey for all involved, so why not be a part of something special and come along for ride?”
