Huge thanks to all of our supporters that made a donation to Chailey Heritage Foundation as part of this year’s Big Give Christmas Challenge.
We are very pleased to announce that we exceeded our target of £24,000 in just one week. With over £12,000 being donated online between 1st and 8th December and 136 donors, we were able to raise an incredible £24,255, with every donation up to £12,000 being matched. Your support means a great deal to us, especially during this challenging year.
All the funds raised will help us to improve the outside play area for the younger pupils at our special school. The area will include raised flower beds, a bridge, sensory activities and a new sunshade, providing shelter come rain or shine. We will also be able to improve the wheelchair access from the classrooms to the play area, helping each child to develop their wheelchair driving skills, and encourage them to make choices.
The funds have been generously matched by our Champion The Julia and Hans Rausing Trust and the following companies: Buxted Construction, Sunninghill Construction, CJ Thorne Civil Engineering, PGL Brickwork and Scaffolding and Adavirtual. We are very grateful to them all for their support.
