Thank you for your patience and understanding.

King's was founded in 1829 to serve society and our students, staff and alumni have been dedicated to making the world a better place ever since.

Giving back to society and to our King's community is an important part of what we do. Every March our Global Day of Service brings the King's community together to volunteer and make a difference in their local, national and international communities. 

Over the last 2 years, alumni around the globe have celebrated Global Day of Service by taking part in acts of service in their communities. Some examples include:

Beach cleans in Peru
Volunteering with WWF in Pakistan
Litter picking in Beijing
GoodGym runs in London
Well-being awareness day in Mexico City
Clothing donations drive in Leeds
Social days with the elderly in Hong Kong
Volunteering with the local community in Boston
Food donation drives in
Collecting donations for the Living Water Community in Trinidad & Tobago
Building habitats for butterflies in San Francisco
