The Horley Association of Traders (HATs) have started a fundraising page to replace items that were recently vandalised.
They need to replace the equipment they use to run the wonderful local events that take place in the Horley area. If you can donate please click here.
“We are raising money as a community for events such as St George’s Day, the Horley Christmas Fair and the Christmas lights. Our storage unit recently got broken into and destroyed. There was thousands of pounds worth of equipment that was destroyed by other people. We are trying to raise money to replace the broken items so that we can carry on with these great events.”
