Keeping you in the loop with the local scoop


Hello June. The sun is out! I hope you all had a brilliant bank holiday weekend with your family, friends and little ones. We are super excited for our Kensington Mums Motherhood exhibition this Friday. Last Saturday we had out boxing class with some lovely Mums at Equinox Kensington. Stay tuned for the pictures in another post. We’ve also been very busy preparing everything including the goody bags which have some amazing goodies inside for our Kensington Mums Motherhood Exhibition.

Kensington Mums attended Chime for Change Live Concert to promote education, health and justice to every girl and every woman. None of us can move forward if half of us are held back. Donate to #ChimeforChange
