Monday 1st December saw the launch of Gatwick Airport’s annual charity appeal at the airport’s South Terminal.
The appeal was launched by Dame Sally Gunnell and Ifield Community College Choir, with special guests Henry Smith MP, Mayor Brenda Smith, Chris Oxlade, and Father Christmas. Also in attendance were children, staff and parents from Chestnut Tree House Children’s Hospice
The Ifield choir were the first of more than 30 musical groups who will be performing at the South Terminal to raise money for the Airport’s chosen charities, notably Chestnut Tree House . The whole season of fundraising events is organised by Travelcare, an airport-based charity.
The ifield singers and drummers have had a remarkable term of charity and community events. They performed for Crawley Voluntary Services in October, for Black History Month, for local schools and will be performing at Crawley Hospital on 18th December and at Ifield Park Care Home on 15th December. The school’s winter concert will take place in the College Atrium on Tuesday 16th December. Tickets available from the school.
