Jenna Durdle, Fundraising Manager has said, “We are extremely
grateful to everyone from the South of England Hedgelaying Society for
continuing to support Chailey Heritage Foundation. The generosity of
your members means a great deal to us. The funds you have donated
will enable us to develop our therapeutic farm, Patchwork Farm. Use
daily by the young people who we support, the funds will be used to help
us plant trees to create more shelter for the animals, and to purchase
raised flower beds and bee-friendly plants. The young people at Chailey
Heritage get a great deal of enjoyment from spending time on our farm,
and without voluntary donations it just wouldn’t be possible.”
So thanks to all those who participated in the Charity Fun Day at
Seddlescombe and got sponsorship- the money will be well spent.
The Society enthusiastically continues to support Chailey Heritage.
