The Friends of Brooklands School in Reigate would like to thank everyone who so generously supported the recent raffle in aid of the school at Cobbett’s Real Ales in Dorking.
Brooklands School is a state-funded special school for children aged between 2 and 11 years with severe or complex learning needs including autism. The school currently supports 91 children, some with complex medical needs, some physical and many who experience sensory differences.
Altogether, almost £300 was raised from the raffle at Cobbett’s Real Ales, which will be used to help fund a special ‘Safespace’ relaxation space for the school’s outdoor classroom, which will provide pupils with a space in which they can sleep, move, roll or play freely, whilst reducing the risk of injury by eliminating hard surfaces.
Jenni Williams, whose daughter Eve, also known affectionately as Tiny Tornado, is a pupil at the school, said she was very grateful to everyone who had bought tickets for the raffle, and also Tim and Helen Sullivan, owners of Cobbett’s Real Ales, for donating a fantastic selection of prizes!
