Summer evening stroll

Volunteers and supporters turned out in force to help raise money on our ‘Pier to the Perch with your Pooch’ summer solstice walk. The evening sun shone on us as we left Worthing pier, heading for the Perch on Lancing Beach Green. Our four legged friends sported their specially made bandanas and we enjoyed a gentle walk along the seafront.
Our thanks go to all those involved, including our St John’s Ambulance first aiders, our local Lancing pet shop for supplying bags of dog treats and the Perch for opening for us at the finish line. Photos courtesy of Gary Levett.
Same time next year…

Dementia Friends


Many of our volunteers and staff attended Dementia Friends sessions at Methold House, Worthing and Chesham House, Lancing over the last  2 weeks. The sessions were delivered by Guildcare a prominent provider of Dementia activities, homes and care in the Worthing area.

The sessions were enjoyed by all participants. They came away with a greater understanding of the disease and the modern approach to helping those 1 in 3 of us who will be affected by it, at first hand or as carers.


West Sussex Armed Forces Weekend in Worthing

We had a stall in Steine Gardens, Worthing on the Saturday to help promote our services and volunteering opportunities within West Sussex.

It was a popular event with many participating organisations dressing the part in 1940’s uniforms.
