Our students, staff and alumni volunteer throughout the year but in March we see a tremendous boost of energy and effort when the King’s community come together across the world to volunteer as part of King’s Global Day of Service.

King’s Global Day of Service is on 25th March (to celebrate the day King’s was founded) but any volunteering activities that take place in March contribute to our total volunteering hours and demonstrate the positive impact that the King’s community has in the world.

In March 2022, the King’s ethos of serving society was stronger than ever with 575 members of the King’s community contributing over 2,900 volunteering hours across 32 countries. From preserving natural spaces in London and coaching basketball, to mentoring students and digitising books for the public domain, King’s students, staff and alumni used their knowledge, skills and experiences to give back and make a positive difference.
