10:40am Thursday 18th July 2013 in News
Sunshine poured down over Downs View Special School’s summer fair over the weekend.
Downs View, a purpose-built special school in Woodingdean for pupils aged four to 19 years who have severe learning difficulties, hold a summer fair every year.
The Friends of Downs View School, made up of parents, carers and staff, funded the fair and supports the school on a voluntary basis.
The Summer Fair brought together pupils, families and friends with lots of different activities such as climbing walls, slides, face-painting, a raffle and a tombola.
Fundraising work has been put in throughout the year in preparation for the summer fair, including a charity ball which raised nearly £4,500 and a Christmas Disco raising just over £2000.
Other fundraisers include quizzes, jumble sales, cake days and Brighton Marathon runners contributing to over £8,000 total so far and counting.
