The more high profile fundraising activities for KLF, range from our flagship event The Annual Luncheon – at Fortnum & Mason since 2006, to amazing personal challenges that are sponsored, such as the most recent Taff Trail Challenge which raised over £18,000 and involved over 30 people, marathon running, three peaks and Himalayan challenges!
We are also supported by friends of Katie who have had their own ideas for fundraising such as Susan Hindmarch’s brilliant idea of Katie’s Books. Pat and Jenny on the committee have their annual fundraisers – Roman coffee mornings and Christmas lunches, which are lively events. Another key source of funds is Pat’s beautiful cards – notelets and Christmas cards – these are painted with a great deal of love and are very popular. We’ve added tote bags and tea towels to our repertoire this year too.
We must also thank some generous donors who have made significant contributions to our funds, some of whom do not wish to be named. We also thank those who give their time and energy to support all of our initiatives.
Not least Mike Fish, Shoal Computer Solutions who has dedicated a significant amount of time and thought to designing and delivering this wonderful website!
