Challenge 65

As it’s our 65th birthday this year we would like your help to raise £65,000. This year more than ever, it’s vital for people to reconnect after a period of isolation and the pandemic.

As well as going out and about on our Birthday Roadshow we are raising vital funds for our Befriending & Connecting Service. This service is a lifeline to so many people across Sussex and we hope to build on it’s foundations and make it an even greater service with more support for those that need us the most.

Together we can help provide essential support for local older people.
