After two postponeme­nts, Horsham College Chaplaincy Book Fair went off without a hitch at the weekend, raising more than $7000. Organiser Yolande Grosser said the event was ‘so much better than expected’, with a constant stream of people through the doors of the college’s Maroske hall. “It’s been really lovely,” she said. “We’ve had young children, grandparen­ts, whole families come in. We’ve had people buying for friends and family – it’s just overwhelmi­ng, the support from the community has just been lovely. A lot of people from the community have come in and said they were so super excited it was back on. It’s just such a lovely event to get everyone involved in.” Money raised supports the role of chaplain, part of Horsham College’s wellbeing team, helping students across the school housing more than 1000 teenagers. Andy Langlands and her daughter Emma, 9, are pictured picking up a bargain at the fair.
