2.30 pm Sat 7th October Poynings Recreation Ground
A short ceremony to officially open the new table tennis table involving WSDC, MSDC, PPC and as many of those involved as possible.
Sheila would like to thank all those who kindly donated to the ‘Just Giving Fund’, the table tennis tournament and an earlier raffle.
The donated goods were delivered and weighed at the Missions food bank on Stanley Road where they were weighed.
We had collected 100kg of goods which are valued at £2 per kg.. Thus a bumper Harvest Crop of £200 for the struggling families in Brighton and Hove.
Thank you Poynings!

Join the volunteers – it’s now even easier
Volunteering in Mid Sussex and Horsham districts is even easier thanks to a new online feature designed to match local people with suitable roles.
Horsham and Mid Sussex Voluntary Action (HAMSVA) website now includes a link to a large searchable database of volunteering opportunities registered by local not-for-profit groups. www.hamsva.org.uk/opportunities
Volunteers will be able to register and search for opportunities based on their locality, interests and skills. And organisations will be able to add their opportunities and register with us online – all for free.
“HAMSVA has a vital role to play in supporting charities and community groups. We are very excited about the new online feature as it will make finding the ideal volunteering opportunity much easier and open up volunteering to a wider audience,” says HAMSVA Manager Sue Edgson.
If you are thinking of volunteering and want to know what’s out there, just log on to www.hamsva.org.uk/opportunities
and explore the many ways in which you can get involved in your community. There are volunteering roles for everyone.
If you and your friends or work colleagues are searching for a team-building exercise then look no further. There are many Team Projects registered by local charities that would love to use your skills to help with gardening, decorating, running a fundraising event or delivering a training course.
If you are a not-for-profit organisation looking to recruit new volunteer helpers then HAMSVA’s website is the best place to promote your roles, and it won’t cost you anything.
