A masquerade ball has been held to raise money for a sensory garden at a Grantham school.
Grantham Additional Needs Federation (GANF) held its first ever ball in support of the garden for Sandon School and raised £2,083.
The event was a complete sell out and 96 people attended the function at The Masonic Hall in Grantham where all the guests wore outfits and masks.
The evening was the brainchild of GANF parent Julie Pattison, whose son Joe has attended Sandon School since he was eight years old. Joe has Global Developmental Delay and is about to begin his final year at Sandon.
Julie said: “My reason for holding the Masquerade Ball was because Sandon School has helped not only Joe but the whole family over the years. They have helped us to help Joe progress and grow into the smart and gorgeous young man he is now. Senior Principal Claire Buffham has been there through thick, thin and the middle bits in between and this was my way of saying thank you.”
GANF received donations from local businesses for the raffle and has thanked them for their support. Special thanks went to The Print Bureau for its support and Make My Day Venue Dressing.
