Sussex author Ros Black presents an illustrated talk about Grace Kimmins, founder of Chailey Heritage School for disabled children. She introduces us to a young Grace working in the slums of London and we learn how the pioneering craft school was a natural progression of this work. Grace’s story takes
us through 2 World Wars and the introduction of the NHS, showing the impact one woman’s determination and flair for fund-raising made in the field of care for the disabled.
Copies of Ros’s biography of Grace Kimmins will be available after the talk – priced at £10. All proceeds are being donated to Chailey Heritage Foundation.
Starts: 7pm (1hr) – Doors open from 6:30pm for tea and coffee.
