What have we achieved?

Over £610 million has been raised through the Campaign, helping to turn answers into action and dreaming into doing.

  • 1,500 scholarships and bursaries are funded each year to support the most promising students. The Dickson Poon School of Law has also been developed, running the largest scholarship programme in Europe.

  • 96 new leaders have been trained by the pioneering African Leadership Centre – creating a new generation of young, and mostly female leaders, to create a brighter future for the continent.

  • 9,000 – that’s how many people King’s could help each year thanks to a new vaccine. With 13 people in every 100,000 in the UK diagnosed with leukaemia every year, the new vaccine could help stop leukaemia from coming back once it has been treated.

  • 20,000 suspected cancer cases could be treated by the new Cancer Centre at Guy’s each year. The brand new centre, set to be one of the largest in Europe will also treat 6,500 cancer patients each year.

  • £580,000 was donated to help the Ebola crisis. Thanks to these donations it was possible for King’s to establish a command centre in Sierra Leone to co-ordinate 15 Ebola units to tend to sick patients. Working with the Sierra Leonean Government and local and international partners, treatment facilities were set up in six hospitals. Sierra Leone has now been Ebola free for more than 90 days.

  • 700 profiles of foreign fighter activity have been compiled by the King’s International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation (ICSR). The ICSR also analyses two million tweets a month to gain intelligence and its database now serves as the world’s largest repository for understanding jihadi behaviours and motivations at their source.

  • One third - of all children’s kidney transplants in the UK – are now carried out at Evelina London Children's Hospital, part of King’s Health Partners. Thanks to clinical excellence and a child-centred approach, Evelina London is the second largest provider of children's services in London.
