KSPA Grand Ball raises £10,300 for East Anglia's Children's Hospices
Pupils, parents and staff have presented East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices with a cheque for £10,300 following this summer’s KSPA Grand Ball and Auction.
Kimbolton School pupils, parents and staff have presented a cheque for £10,300 to East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices, following this summer’s KSPA Grand Ball and Auction.
Organised by the Kimbolton School Parents’ Association (KSPA), the event aimed to raise funds and awareness for the charity, which supports families and cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk. Guests at the event enjoyed dinner, fireworks and a live band – as well as a silent auction with top prizes including a Spitfire Experience, a Canoe and Tipi Family adventure, a Cookery Course at Le Manoir and a recording studio session.
Denise Fenn, Fundraising Development Manager for EACH said: "We are absolutely thrilled with the impressive amount raised by Kimbolton School, and on behalf of EACH I’d like to thank all the parents and staff for the hard work and dedication they’ve shown in raising such a wonderful sum. This donation will make such a difference to the local children and families that we support at EACH and will allow us to continue with this essential work."
The KSPA is led by an active group of enthusiastic parents who organise and manage social events to enhance the school community, raise funds for extra-curricular activities and donate to recognised charities. Following on from the success of the KSPA’s Fireworks Spectacular last week, don’t miss their annual Christmas Fair on Sunday 7 December in the Kimbolton Castle State Rooms from 10.30 am until 4.00 pm. This year's event will be raising money for Dan’s Hope, a local charity which helps children who suffer from Muscular Dystrophy.
