The Brighton College Prep School Association asked local business people, shopkeepers, parents and friends to make a donation to the Raffle, Tree of Goodwill or Silent Auction. Together we raised almost £14,000! A record for us.
The proceeds from these donations will be divided equally between two charities:
Chestnut Tree House
The only children's hospice in Sussex who provides specialist palliative care to children and young adults. This charity offers desperately needed respite for parents who are living with children with life limiting diseases.
Garden Route Children's Trust
Launched in 2006, this UK registered charity aims to help the children of South Africa’s Garden Route (www.grct.org.uk). The charity has grown at a pace since then; so however has the need in South Africa. The GRCT's principal beneficiary is the E'pap Children's Feeding project (www.epapfeeding.co.za). The project feeds over 4,500 children a porridge called e'Pap, each school day. The cost of feeding one child a bowl of e'Pap each school day for a year is between £18-20, depending on the exchange rate. E'Pap helps give malnourished children a much better start in life.
