Kytons community fundraising drives are legendary in South Australia – Kytons has always been about community and helping groups fundraise, so to coincide with National Lamington Day 2022 (Thursday 21st July), Kytons is launching a new initiative to help one of our favourite charities – Kickstart for Kids.

Kickstart for Kids and Kytons are asking schools and businesses to run a lamington drive in the next couple of months – with the profits going to Kickstart’s amazing work in South Australian Schools.

KickStart For Kids is a not-for-profit organisation that helps disadvantaged school children in South Australia achieve positive educational outcomes and increased self-esteem through school breakfast and lunch programs, mentoring programs, and their Camp KickStart school holiday care program as well as their Period Poverty campaign. KickStart For Kids currently serves around 50,000 breakfasts per week in 350 SA schools as well as 10,000 cheese and vegemite sandwiches each week for kids’ lunches.

“Kytons have been a massive supporter of KickStart for a number of years” says Kickstart Founder Ian Steele, “and do amazing things in the community – their lamington drives are a prime example of this and we’re proud to get support from such a loved South Aussie brand.

We really hope that schools get behind this initiative and help us raise money for disadvantaged children in South Australia, and who doesn’t love a good Kytons lamington!” Ian concluded.

As many of you know from your own fundraising experiences with Kytons, our lamington drives are easy to run and people just LOVE to buy a lamington, especially for a good cause and especially a Kytons lamington!  Running a lamington drive for Kickstart will not only stock up your fridge with delicious lamingtons, but leave you feeling great about having assisted such an incredibly important SA-based charity.
