Chairman to support Kangaroos charity
Mid Sussex District Council Chairman Cllr Margaret Belsey has chosen to support Kangaroos disability charity during her term in office.
It is tradition for MSDC Chairman to select a charity to support when hosting fundraising, civic and social events. Councillor Belsey has chosen Kangaroos, a charity that is dedicated to bringing colour to the lives of people with learning disabilities.
Kangaroos was established in 1994 by a small group of parents whose children attended Court Meadow School in Cuckfield, which specialises in supporting children with learning disabilities. The parents wanted their children to be able to access after school activities and opportunities that mainstream school children enjoyed, so they set up a Saturday playscheme for six children. Now the organisation has grown immeasurably and currently supports 227 members ranging in age from 6 to 35.
