Donations to Charities & Good Causes

£500 to the Rockinghorse Charity – this Brighton based charity helps parents cope when their children are in the Princess Alexandra Hospital undergoing treatment.
£500 to Ronald McDonald House in Brighton which provides “home away from home” accommodation for families with children in hospital.
We have donated £400 to The Early Birth Association which supports the Trevor Mann Baby Unit and Princess Royal Special Care Baby Unit. This charity was of great help recently to one of our member’s daughter and grandchild.
Loving Humanity, which assists women in war-torn Syria. The founder, Amy Peake, has opened a factory which generates sanitary towels, nappies and incontinence pads for desperate women. One of our members heard her on Women’s Hour talking about her charity and asked us if we could help. We have sent £400 to Amy and she responded with an email asking me to pass on her heartfelt thanks to you all as this will help her open a second factory.
In 2015 we donated £500 to the Mary How Trust for Cancer Prevention in Pulborough which enables anyone to have screening for cancer, regardless of whether they can afford it, they just give a donation.
We also donated £500 to the Shoreham-based As You Are Centre which provides counselling and group work for depression, stress and anxiety in Sussex.
In 2014 we donated £800 to Emily’s Trust (a young lady and her parents who have set up a fund to enable her to lead an independent life after being struck down with meningitis at the age of 15).
All the charities have been very grateful for our donations and would like us to pass on to you their thanks. The Hospice and Air Ambulance charities have sent us certificates to commemorate our donations.
