Longer Site Opening

It has been announced recently that the site in Selsey is now going to open from March to the beginning of January each year, an extension of 2 months.  This is fantastic news for us, as it means we will be able to help more families each year.  However, our current caravan is not suitable for poorly children to be staying in during the height of winter.  Therefore we are working hard to raise money to upgrade our caravan to one with central heating and double glazing.  If you have any ideas for fundraising, and would like to discuss them with us or need our help, then please do contact us - we would love to hear from you.

Cake Sale

Our first cake sale in August was a huge success, and there has been talk of making this an annual event.  We would like to thank everyone who baked some amazing cakes for us, and to all those who turned up and helped us eat them!  We even had a visit from Tim Loughton, MP for East Worthing and Shoreham, who came along with a delicious apple cake.  We raised a total of £460.45, thanks for the support.  


We would like to welcome aboard Steve and Jen Chapman, who have joined us as trustees.  We look forward to working with them in the future and coming up with lots of fantastic ideas. 

Fire Station Open Day

This was our first year at the Fire Station Open Day, and despite having to pack up early due to the rain, we had a fantastic day and met some lovely people.  We had a lucky dip for the kids which went down well, but our biggest attraction was our buzz wire, which was made for us earlier this year.  That caused a great deal of excitement, as not only do you get to race each other, but the looser gets squirted with water!  Our thanks to Gavin for a wonderful creation.  

Our Supporters 

Thanks to Richard Howting, who ran the Brighton Marathon and raised £633 for the Trust.
