Worthing & Adur Fund continues to deliver
The latest donations to this growing fund are making such a difference to Voluntary and Charity groups across Worthing & Adur.
Miller Parris Solicitors were delighted to once again donate £1,000 to the Worthing and Adur Fund
Mike Metters, of Miller Parris commented “We are really proud to continue to be involved with the Worthing and Adur Fund. It is a real pleasure to see so many local organisations and community groups being able to benefit from the charity.”
Congratulations to Louise Hickey who successfully ran the Brighton marathon kindly sponsored by Howdens Joinery. Robert Burge from the Worthing branch of Howdens presented a cheque for £500 to the fund, “Donating money to this worthy local cause is the easy bit-running the marathon is the hard bit!”
As a result of the Superstar Arts presentation at the recent Chamber Breakfast with our local MP’s , the fund received a cheque for £1000 from Sir Peter Bottomley MP for Worthing West! A very big thank you to Sir Peter!
Worthing & Adur Chamber of Commerce developed the Worthing and Adur Fund for the local area in 2011, in partnership with Sussex Community Foundation, a charity that develops and supports local giving.
The Chamber has worked with the Foundation to promote this permanent fund which, as it grows, will provide grants from the income it earns for charities and community groups, for years to come.
A number of local individuals and businesses became Founder Donors giving a minimum of £1,000 which provided the seed donations to establish the core endowment fund, and since then many more local businesses have contributed to ensure the continuing success of this worthwhile project.
Recently a total of £3,838 was awarded between the following local groups;
Superstar Arts CIC, Maybridge Keystone Club, Heene Community Association, The Friends of Oak Grove College, Cruse Bereavement Care, Electric Storm Youth and CircusSeen.
