The Kris Boyd Charity (a Registered Charity In Scotland – Scottish Charity Number SCO47532 – for The Advancement of Health) was founded in January, 2018.
Since its inception, Kris, his family, Trustees and the rest of the team have been overwhelmed with the support and generosity from all over the UK, particularly in Ayrshire and West of Scotland.
Scottish football and the wider sporting community has given its full endorsement to what Kris is trying to achieve, many people have backed the Charity with their time, effort and donations.
The foundations have been put down and we now look to keep growing. We plan to tackle everything head on, expand and offer more services, whether its helping to raise Mental Health awareness and also with increase Partnerships and Relationships with other charities, as well as businesses and support groups.
We are proud of the efforts so far and thanks to public generosity we have raised in excess of £200,000 from Events and Donations.
We put the donations to good use and have had several ‘Calm Your Mind’ wellness workshops around the country for adults. We also have had other Wellbeing sessions around the country with some expert advice. The feedback from the sessions has been first class. We also enjoy a great working relationship with Ayrshire College.
