We will be back at the Gateway at 3.30pm.  Please arrange for prompt collection of your child at this time.

Where the money is going..

Proceeds from the days will go to further the work of both the Woodcraft Folk charities and the Steyning Downland Scheme, providing youth-oriented events and activities both locally and overseas.

Steyning Woodcraft Folk are currently involved in a project raising funds for university fees for Sharon and Ester, two students from the village of Mitoto, in Kenya, where they have had a partner Woodcraft group for the last 10 years. Sharon is studying to teach English, and Ester is studying IT. By supporting two young people from an needy area of Kenya to access higher education, the event will be enabling both them and their families to progress out of poverty.


PLEASE NOTE: If you would like to book for more than one child, please buy each ticket separately because we need to collect health and safety information specific to each child as part of the booking process.
