Gary and Sue Palmer, the founders and owners of Farley Nursery School, were invited to Kensington Palace to thank them for their support for Street Child the charity dedicated to funding education for vulnerable children in Africa and Asia.
Farley Nursery School helps finance three schools in Sierra Leone which was the poorest nation in the world when the charity’s work began in 2008. The Ebola crisis in 2014 made matters worse when many thousands of children of children were orphaned. The charity estimate there are 121 million school-aged children currently out of education world-wide.
Sue Palmer, Principal of Farley Nursery School said, ‘Street Child helps children in the world’s toughest places to go to school and learn so they have a chance of a brighter future. We at Farley Nursery School are proud to be involved with this inspirational initiative in one of the most deprived areas in the world.’
Founder Patron, Sarah, Duchess of York and Global Ambassador HRH Princess Eugenie of York attended the tenth birthday celebrations which included a private viewing of Princess Diana’s costumes, a formal dinner and live fundraising auction.
Farley Nursery School has three ‘outstanding’ OFSTED schools in Farley, Steeple Langford and Sparsholt.
