Festival of Good Wishes Will Benefit Adults With Special Needs

Published: 26th June 2017 17:43

 Rossi King with mum Rae StephensA fundraiser to continue a community project building a garden for special needs adults takes place near Fareham this weekend.

The Brook Lane care home in Brook Lane, Sarisbury Green, will be hosting a Festival of Good Wishes on Saturday, July 1st from 12pm to 5pm. It will be a traditional fete featuring a host of stalls and attractions, including a display by the Portsmouth Reptile and Amphibian Society.

The event is the brainchild of Warsash mum, Rae Stephens, whose son Rossi King lives at Brook Lane. Ross, 20, a former pupil at St Francis Special School in Fareham, suffers from severe autism and epilepsy.

Last summer, Rae put together a community project to build an activity garden filled with sensory activities for Rossi and the other residents of Brook Lane. Local businesses supplied materials and labour to help refurbish the gardens, and now this latest fundraiser is a final push to complete the job.

“We have been so grateful for the support from the local community towards the Garden of Good Wishes, which is making a real difference to the quality of lives of Ross and all the other residents,” said Rae.

“We’ve got our fingers crossed for good weather and hope to see as many people as possible to the festival so we can finish the work there.”
