2014 Gatwick Airport Charity Carol Fundraiser
Launching the Christmas season with style, Ifield Community College Choir shone through a full 2-hour programme of traditional carols supported by VIPs including Her Worship Mayor
Brenda Smith and consort Jim Smith. Amanda Jupp, Chairman of West Sussex County Council; Crawley MP Henry Smith; Olympian Sally Gunnell and Father Christmas also pitched in with
children, staff and parents from Chestnut Tree House, the only children’s hospice in Sussex.
Chestnut Tree House, Research UK and TravelCare (an independent registered charity
that has assisted troubled passengers at Gatwick since 1986) are the three charities chosen by the airport to benefit from fundraising by staff over 2015.
The choir was the first of more than 30 musical groups performing at the South Terminal over the holiday season.
