The role of The Friends
Over the years, members of the Committee have helped the school community in several ways. We give our time on a voluntary basis to support formal school & foundation events, organise social activities, & co-ordinate fundraising events in support of various projects which directly benefit the students. These have included in 2015 a donation of £7000 to the school for the furnishing of the newly renovated canteen. In the past, monies raised have been used to purchase a Minibus, Lighting stands, IT Equipment & Costumes but the list is endless.
How can you get involved?
The success of KLB Friends relies on parental support. Why not play an active role in the things we do? You could help out at school concerts and plays by setting up and serving interval drinks……..even manage the bar! If you are really keen why not attend our meetings where you can help shape the things we do….. you may be able to offer some personal skills and knowledge that could be helpful in achieving our goals.
If you are too busy with your time why not get involved in our three fundraising schemes:
- The 80/20 club. This is a monthly prize draw where 20% of the money raised is given in prizes. The more people who join the club, the greater the prizes.
- Easyfundraising. Sign up on the easyfundraising site to support KLB; with every purchase online from one of the many participating retailers you will make a small donation for FREE. To sign up, go to KLB Friends Fundraising Ideas | easyfundraising.org.uk
- One-off Gift Aided donation
- Monthly Donation scheme.

“The Friends” is a great way to make friends with other parents and meet some of the teaching staff, whilst making a valuable supporting contribution to school life. If you can spare the time, we would welcome you on board.
