Local Businesses Help Raise £3,215
Highfield Prep School Highreach Holidays

32 independent businesses from across Surrey, Hampshire and West Sussex have joined Highfield and Brookham Schools on our mission to raise money for Highfield Highreach Holidays. Every year our children support a different charity. They are given the opportunity to vote for the charity they want to support and this year they chose Highreach.

Highfield Highreach Holidays is a small volunteer-run organisation that provides a week-long residential holiday for young people, aged 8 -16 years old, with a range of learning difficulties. It allows them to enjoy an incredible week full of memorable experiences in the safe environment of Highfield and Brookham Schools. It also provides crucial respite for the families of these children.

In light of the struggles that 2020 has bought to many people, our children and their parents wanted to find a way to support independent businesses and still raise money. They invited businesses to be part of our Christmas Shopping Directory which was sent to all of our parents and teachers in the run up to Christmas. In return for being listed each company donated to the Christmas charity raffle.

The charity raffle was one of the most successful yet raising £3,215 for Highfield Highreach Holidays which specifically accommodates those families who cannot afford the high price of many commercial respite care schemes. Costs are kept low by fundraising initiatives such as this Christmas raffle to cover more than 50% of the cost of the holidays.

Sophie Baber, Headteacher at Brookham School said:

It is no surprise that this year’s raffle was one of the most successful ones we have seen. It was led by our passionate parents who wanted to share quality gift ideas, support independent businesses and raise money for such an incredible charity. Thank you to all of the businesses and people that made this possible.
