Ingfield Manor School in Billingshurst has hosted another knock-out summer fête.
On Sunday 9 June, hordes of families flocked to Ingfield Manor to join the annual fayre and celebration, which has been held in the school’s grounds for more than 40 years. This year’s event was opened by extra-special guest Francesca Martinez, the award-winning comedian who has cerebral palsy, who some might remember from children’s drama Grange Hill.
2019’s fayre, organised by Friends of Ingfield, was jam-packed full of exciting attractions and sideshows. It featured a fun fair, the famous miniature train, woodland tours, local choirs performing and much more.
Mrs Tracey White, Director of Education at Ingfield Manor, said: “We’re incredibly lucky at Ingfield to have the amazing support of Friends of Ingfield. But we also think it’s important for us to contribute positively to the local community. Holding our annual fête is one way to do that, welcoming families and residents from all around the area.”
Greg Hart from Friends of Ingfield, added: “The best thing about running the fayre, is bringing all the teams of volunteers together, to raise funds to improve the lives of the children to provide additional equipment they couldn’t otherwise get.”
John Godden, CEO of Salutem Healthcare, which runs Ingifeld Manor School, said: “The sun always shines on the Ingfield Manor fayre!
“People put in a huge amount of effort to raise money for the pupils here who need a lot of equipment to get through their days.
“Thank you to everybody involved. Brilliant effort!”
Ingfield Manor School is a specialist day and boarding school for children and young people with neurological impairments and complex medical conditions.
