Sanctuary in Chichester passes halfway stage in its fundraising campaign

We have raised an extraordinary £20,000 since we launched our fundraising campaign just eight months ago. This impressive sum – which represents 50% of our target – has come via such varied means as concerts, grant bids, donations and greeting card sales.

Our success to date has given us great confidence that we’ll reach our goal of £40,000, and so be able to sustain and expand our support for refugees and asylum seekers in West Sussex.

We’ve got a pipeline of future events and activities lined up to support our appeal:

• Throughout August we’re asking supporters to bake and sell cakes on our behalf and to send a cheque for the proceeds – however small – to Sanctuary in Chichester, PO Box 794, Chichester, PO19 9UL.

• On Sunday 7 October, at 6pm, soprano Rebecca Grove and mezzo-soprano Stephanie Peat will sing to the accompaniment of harpist Frances Kelly, at Holy Trinity Church, Bosham.

• On Saturday 13th October, at 7.30pm, we are holding a barn dance at the Fishbourne Centre, with live music, a caller, a raffle and a ploughman’s supper. The event will be a great opportunity for our community to come together and enjoy an evening of music and dancing. Buy tickets here.

Seeking new fundraisers

Our fundraising success is due to the generosity of our supporters – and the efforts of our voluntary fundraising committee. We are looking for new recruits to attend our monthly meetings and to plan and help with events and other fundraising activities. If you are interested in joining the team, please mail us at sanctuaryinchichester@gmail.com.
