A Day for Gray - Fundraising for Edith Borthwick

'A Day for Gray' is a fund raiser set up by the parents of Gray, a young boy who attends The Edith Borthwick Special School in Braintree, Essex. The school provides a high quality education tailored specifically for the individual needs of the 248 pupils aged between 3-19 who attend there.  Due to the current economic climate, all schools require additional funds and it is with this in mind that Gray's family decided to set up a fund raising scheme to raise money via their Go Fund Me Page for much needed specialist playground equipment.
I have been in contact with Victoria Faulks the chair person of FOEBS who asked me to pass on her gratitude for your donation. 'I'm delighted that Palmer & Partners 500 Club have agreed to support us too! Thank you and your members so very much! I'm sure your endorsement will also mean a great deal to Gray's parents'.

'FOEBS is enormously grateful for the support of our families and local businesses who recognise that anyone can make a difference to our learners, all of whom have mountains to climb . The additional resources our school needs can only be achieved through the generosity of others. As a small team of volunteers with big ambitions for our learners, every penny will be spent wisely and have an impact on the learning, development and happiness of the most wonderful children and young people.'
