The following paragraph forms part of the vision statement that Chailey Heritage Foundation work to achieve. For me it sums up perfectly the attitude that pervades the entire foundation and there is nothing that I could add to enhance or advertise the appeal of the school better.
" Every young person at Chailey Heritage School will be given every opportunity to make progress towards fulfilment. We will never, ever give up looking for ways to support our young people to make their own choices in life, and to achieve their own desired destinations. "
So where do we start? Chailey Heritage Foundation requires an awful lot of funding for both current and future projects and the sums involved could be mind boggling to those of us who are not used to running such an organisation. Of course every little helps regardless of where it comes from or how it was raised and each penny will be put to good use. As the inspiration for our fundraising originally stemmed from our own daughter we elected to target our donation towards the riding school that exists at Chailey Heritage School as horse riding is one of her favourite activities. Other than being a pleasant outdoor activity, riding can form an integral part of a persons physiotherapy and provide cardio vascular exercise, aid in the development of communication and social skills, increase confidence and generally provide valuable experience for those taking part. Please take a few momments of your time to view the Chailey Heritage Foundation website to fully appreciate the task in hand. www.chf.org.uk
