Surrey Freemasons Support Downs View Special Needs School

On a very rainy day recently Downs View Special Needs School in Brighton joined with Surrey Freemasons at a fund raising event at Surrey National Golf Club.

The challenges were a Hole in One competition for a golfing holiday in Portugal and a Crazy Golf Competition where a number of prizes were on offer. Despite the weather £1000.00 was raised and the organiser and member of the Order Nick Gras said, ”Two of my Grandsons attend Downs View and the progress they are making gives us hope for the future. The teachers and support team do a wonderful job and some children have challenging problems, but all receive one to one support. Every time I visit I am surrounded by smiling children who are clearly in a happy environment”.

Head Teacher of Downs View School Adrian Carver said, “The money raised will go towards replacing our two very aged minibuses which are essential in supporting our complex children’s access to the community, for swimming and other activities. Thank you so much on behalf of the Downs View children to everyone who helped Nick to make this event such a success”.
