Kent Giving Week

The University of Kent hosts its first ever giving week

We are excited to announce that the University of Kent will be hosting its first ever fundraising week, Kent Giving Week. Join us from the 9th to 13th May 2022 to help us raise vital funds for University projects.

Kent Giving Week will include a packed programme of engaging events, both in person and online, including a 5k route wearing silent disco headphones, a lunchtime music concert, TED talks and our PhD students talking about their cutting-edge research. There will also be The Big Finale Livestream which you will not want to miss.

Why not take part in The Moving Challenge, where this year’s target is to travel the collective distance of 5,000km in whichever way you fancy such as running, swimming, walking, cycling or even the vertical distance of a skydive whilst raising funds through sponsorship.

Our target is to raise £25,000 with a specific focus on Parkinson’s disease.  Our new Parkinson’s Centre for Integrated Therapy will provide individualised and integrated non-drug therapies all under one roof to improve the physical and mental wellbeing of people living with Parkinson’s disease. It will include ground-breaking neurostimulation techniques pioneered at the University of Kent along with tested therapies such as physiotherapy, group exercise, psychotherapy and massage therapy.

Save the date and join us in May.
