We are the Sussex community fundraising office for the Charity Marie Curie Cancer Care. We co-ordinate fundraising campaigns and activities across the whole of Sussex raising money to support our local nursing service. Marie Curie Cancer Care is a UK Charity that provides high quality nursing care, free of charge to give terminally ill people the choice of dying at home supported by their loved ones.
HART are a group of local residents who provide support to the Sussex Ambulance Service NHS Trust by responding early to serious medical and other life threatening conditions, including Heart Attacks, Drowning, Unconsciousness and Severe Bleeding The current 7 Responders, together with HART's founder, Dave Fletcher (in blue) are shown above. Responders, who are trained by the Sussex Ambulance Service do not replace the ambulance service but at their request, attend the scene prior to the ambulance arrival thus reduce the delay of providing skills such as Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation and Defibrillation. You can donate to HART through the HART BTmyDonate page.
The Lions Club International is a global organisation with 46,000 clubs in 207 different countries, all active in local community projects. All Lions have the same goal – to help people less fortunate than themselves. The Henfield and District Lions have another aim as well – to have fun whilst fundraising! During 2016 we have held several fundraising events, including a jumble sale, Race Night and a Quiz Night; we have run stalls at Smalldole Summer Fete and supported Cowfold's Summer Fete; all of these activities resulted in donations to local charities. Socially, we have enjoyed a fish'n'chip supper in a garden, a meal out at The Fox in Smalldole, had an old fashioned games night and buffet, Sunday lunch at The Hove Dog Track and still to come our Henfield Charter Night, and of course our Christmas meal. Being a Henfield Lion is very rewarding - it really does feel good to give something back to the community you live in. We enjoy fundraising and socialising and would welcome anyone who would like to come and join in with our activities. If you'd like to come along to one of our meetings or fundraising events to find out a bit more about us, just give Lion David a ring on 01273 494442. David will arrange to meet you at the venue and introduce you to everyone. You will be made very welcome.
