Get LARA back on an even keel

See our Crowfunder Campaign >

Crowdfunder Campaign

We are delighted to have found a way to stay in London and can't wait to welcome our students to Clapham North. But this unexpected move is putting a huge financial strain on the school - we need your help.

The good news is that there is plenty of time to do the necessary building work on LARA London before term starts - phewph! But the bad news is we have to pay for it: all £50,000 of it. The demand for and cost of commercial space in London right now means there's no getting away from this.

£52,000 is a huge cost for any small business to absorb. So really, we're asking for your help so LARA can survive. The business needs to stay viable so that all the good work of our students can continue. Please help us over this hurdle and back to business as usual!

Please donate to our Crowdfunder page - we have some fabulous rewards to say thank you.
