Fundraising at Ingatestone Hall

What a delight it was earlier in June when we welcomed a enthusiastic group of supporters to stunning Ingatestone Hall to find out more about the work we do in Outside In Pathways.

The esteemed guests enjoyed a short presentation on our work with one of our most marginalised groups of people.

Many guests were surprised by the breath of the work we do, enriching lives by taking people with learning disabilities and autism in groups to major and smaller museums, galleries, notable places of worship and royal palaces in London.

We offer them unique social opportunities as we offer them on going arts and heritage-based workshops. This means that our participants are given the opportunity to create their own culture, in places of high culture, thus themselves becoming part of the mainstream culture.

May we extend a huge thank you to the management and staff at Ingatestone Hall for their generosity and kindness throughout. We would also like to thank the following for providing support and sponsorship:

  • Tony Bevan
  • Creative Interpartners
  • Frontier Support Services
  • Jeroboams
  • Laithwaite’s Wine
  • C Lidgates Butchers
  • Melt Chocolates
  • Julian Simpole
  • Waitrose, High Street Kensington

And thank you to all friends and colleagues who gamely took part as waiting staff — second careers beckon!
