We pioneer life-saving cancer research to help us beat cancer


Thank you for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

Three amazing years ago, we were fortunate enough to become part of the most exciting opportunity and fantastic school community.

King's Gate Primary School opened its porta cabin doors to the most amazing group of families that I have ever had the chance to work with. Each family bringing their own story to the King's Gate building and each family trusting that King's Gate was truly something special.

From that day on, the King's Gate staff understood the hopes and dreams that had been entrusted upon them by these families for their children.

Since that day, as with all schools, it has not been plain sailing for King's Gate Primary with Covid causing closures to most children almost as soon as we opened.

Despite this, the growing King's Gate Primary School Community remained strong throughout this time, supporting each other through many challenging times.

In May, the school community was rocked by the devastating news that one of our original parents had sadly passed away from Cancer leaving 2 totally awesome children and family. Now in September, another of our amazing King's Gate mum's begins her battle against Cancer.

As a result of this news, and wanting to do something to raise money for all those battling Cancer and in memory of Sophie, the King's Gate staff have entered the Great South Run and the Bournemouth 10k both in October 2022 to raise money for Cancer Research. We have also invited all of our children to join together as part of Team KGPS to run the King's Gate Colour Run on Friday 14th October to celebrate life and its many different colours.

Please come down to Bournemouth on Sunday 9th and Portsmouth on Sunday 16th October to cheer us on and join with us in memory of Sophie.
