Horsham people and firms are being urged to dig deep to support a local school which teaches children with learning difficulties.
Mayfair Hair is raising money for Queen Elizabeth II Silver Jubilee School in Comptons Lane.
The school’s children all have one or more learning disabilities, and some have physical disabilities as well.
A statement from Sue Jay, the school’s head of creative arts, said: “Creative arts are a major part of school life, and we are presently rehearsing for the whole-school show More Magic of the Musicals, which is due to take place at the end of November.
“For the show we would dearly love to have in place a back-drop curtain at the back of the stage, rather than the wall that is there at the moment.
“The cost would be £2,000, and this would be professionally fitted by the same theatre suppliers who also fitted the lights and the sounds system in the studio.
“Our students will be able to design and paint up to four interchangeable curtains, which can then be painted over and re-used for future productions.”
Mayfair Hair owner Kay Tyler, whose husband is the school’s site manager, is a long-standing fundraiser for the school, and helps out there when she can.
Kay said they are asking everyone to donate to the school’s creative arts fund.
Contributors will be invited to take part in a Christmas raffle with prizes donated by local companies. The raffle draw is likely to be held in the week before Christmas.
To donate, drop into Mayfair Hair in East Street, Horsham.
