Our much anticipated D.R.E.A.M. Centre is nearly a reality with the 'topping out' ceremony which took place on-site in early March.
Years in the planning, The D.R.E.A.M (dynamic, real, experiential, amazing, magical) Centre will be a modern, purpose-built space, large enough for children and young people with disabilities to participate in a mixture of arts and physical activities. Wheelchair football, power chair driving, trampolining, drama and dance will all be on offer alongside the four dimensional sensory experience. This multi-media experience will allow children to be ‘transported’ virtually to different countries and experience the sights and sounds from around the world.
Sally Anne-Murray, Development Director, comments
It's wonderful to see the topping out of The D.R.E.A.M. Centre taking place. This wouldn't be happening without the phenomenal support of our sponsors, trusts, foundations, local businesses and the general public who have helped us raise the £3.1 million needed for its design and build. Many of the activities will be ground-breaking and will really broaden the horizons of the young people who use the facility and enable them to develop new skills.
The D.R.E.A.M. Centre will be open for the young people at Chailey Heritage Foundation in the summer.
A huge thank you to everyone who has helped make the dream a reality.
