Donation from Belgrave Police Station

The KJ Trust has received a cheque for £150, presented by PC Riches. The cheque represents profits from the tuckshop at Belgrave Police Station, from which officers from all parts of the police force make purchases.

PC Riches proposed that part of the profits should go to the Katherine Jacobs Trust. She knew Kathy for many years and respected the work that she did as a local primary school teacher.

Quiz Night

The Katherine Jacobs Trust held a quiz night on the 7th March 2009 at Quorn Village Hall. Fifteen teams turned up on the night and took part in ten rounds of questions such as sport, science, film and music.

The winning team named themselves the Educators Plus One. The event was a great success, raising £537.43 for the trust. A big thank you to Jenny Winning, who read out all the questions and helped to organise the event, including the catering. We would also like to thank all those who came and supported the event.

Ex-Pupils Raise Funds for Charity

During the Summer term  2007 at Loughborough High School, pupils of the school raised £139.42 for  the Trust.

Two pupils in 11JAL, who were pupils at Holywell Primary School were instrumental in choosing Kathy's Charity. They held a number of events such as holding a cake and doughnut sale and a cafe type event in the school hall. The funds will go towards information regarding raising awareness of Necrotizing fasciitis. A BIG  thank you to all the pupils of 11JAL.

Plaque Dedication Service

On Saturday 3rd November 2007 all the family were invited to the 'Garden of Remembrance' at Loughborough University. On a tranquil and warm autumnal day with the sun shining and the gardens looking splendid, the plaque for Kathy was dedicated by a short service conducted by the Loughborough University chaplains. Poems, readings and kind words were spoken by the chaplains. For example:

"Now is a time to remember those we have loved and see no more except in our memories and in our hearts. With the beauty of the garden around us and in the silence we will remember them."
