Bedales hosts Summer family event for Home-Start Butser

For the second year running Bedales hosted a special summer barbecue event for over 100 guests from Home-Start Butser, a local charity helping families with young children to cope through a difficult time in their lives.

Upon arrival at the school, the families enjoyed a swim in the School’s sports centre followed by entertainment for the children in the School’s sports study room, which became a crèche for the day. Bedales students from Blocks 3 and 4 (Year 9 and 10) and 6.1 (lower-sixth) helped with the children’s entertainment, which featured face-painting, ball games and walks to see the animals on the estate.

Nicola Winter of Home-Start Butser said, “The family BBQ was a great success and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We are very grateful to Graham Banks (Bedales Head of English) and Bedales for putting on such a lovely event for our local families.”
