We are a local network of volunteers initially formed in response to the COVID-19 crisis and now permanent across Merton, Wandsworth and Kingston.
We aim to help those in our local community to fight poverty and offer support. We provide food parcels, household goods, furniture and appliances. We also offer laptops through our Keep Kids Connected initiative for children who do not have access to online learning.
We're Sports for Social Change Award Winners!
Dons Local Action Group has been recognised by the Sports Journalists’ Association for the outstanding work we have accomplished in 2020. We’re delighted to be included as winners alongside Marcus Rashford, Lou Macari and Ebony Rainford-Brent.
A huge thank you to all of our volunteers, partners, and the AFC Wimbledon Foundation for making this happen.

Keep Kids Connected
We’ve reached a landmark achievement: the donation of over 2,000 laptops and tablets through our Keep Kids Connected initiative. Thank you to all of our generous donors! These life-changing donations have enabled children in our local community to access online learning. We’re fighting digital poverty, but there are still more children to reach. Make a meaningful impact and donate your unwanted laptop today.
Where do our supplies come from?
Everything is donated by the communities of Kingston, Merton and Wandsworth. Each month, on average, we redistribute the equivalent of over £150,000 in goods donated by our community. From a shopper dropping food off at our supermarket stalls, individual donations of furniture and laptops, and local companies making generous bulk donations.
Wimbledon supporter, David cycled the length of Britain to fundraise for Dons Local Action Group!
Cycling an average of 180km a day, David cycled through the sun, wind, and rain from Land’s End in Cornwall to John o’Groats, in Northern Scotland. Cycling for 10 hours a day over his 9 day adventure.
You can still sponsor his epic cycle ride. Visit David’s fundraising page.
The Dons Local Action Group are nothing short of amazing! Practical, entrepreneurial and inspirational. I love them.
We rely on our army of volunteers at Dons Local Action Group and we need your help.
