Kimbolton School Parents' Association
The past three years have been something of a 'high water mark' for the KSPA, with record amounts of fundraising and some high profile events jostling for space in our already busy calendar. We were particularly delighted with the recent Jools Holland music event, which drew in crowds from far and wide, and certainly put Kimbolton on the map!
This has translated through to some exceptional donations to charitable good causes away from the school, where we have been proud to donate over £46,000 in the past year alone, whilst continuing to fund and support over 20 individual grants requests from within the Prep and Senior schools totalling nearly £50,000.
The most enjoyable part of the KSPA work is when we sit and review applications for things as diverse as a Forest School, guest speakers for the History Society or equipment for outward bound activities. We try and ensure that our children, whatever age or interest, benefit from the funds that we raise.
This term includes some exciting and new ideas for your enjoyment and entertainment, including a Quiz night on 1 March. Later in the year we are looking forward to the Butterfly Ball on 4 May, a music event on Friday 30th and Saturday 31st August, and Spirits of Kimbolton on Friday 11 October.
Do come and support the events we host and if you can spare us a couple of hours of your time to help at one or more of the events, please get in touch. If each family at Kimbolton was able to offer just two hours we could further develop our work and ultimately build on our already considerable success.
Jobs vary widely from selling tickets, setting up / clearing away after the event – tables, chairs, banners, decorations etc, putting out signs, raffle, posters, social media, advertising / marketing / making cakes (bake it or fake it!) with or without soggy bottoms / serving refreshments – teas / coffees, bar work etc. Please consider getting involved, it's great fun and a fabulous way to meet new people!
Thanks for your continued support.
