The Cranleigh Christmas Fair is run annually by the Cranleigh Friends office and a team of volunteers, to raise money for the Cranleigh Foundation, a fund that provides bursary-assisted places at Cranleigh School and Cranleigh Preparatory School for children in need of a boarding education. Bursaries are given discreetly by the Foundation to children who have experienced family trauma or bereavement and whom the Foundation judges would benefit from Cranleigh’s supportive environment as a result. Many Cranleighans have already benefitted from full grants from the Foundation and it is hoped that many more will do so in the future.
Foundation pupils have said:
“My time at Cranleigh is simple to quantify: it has given me a future.”
“Cranleigh is a very special place and without the help of so many generous people I would not have had the chance to experience it and fulfil my potential.”
