I’m very pleased to report that the Club’s extraordinarily generous collection for the Chichester Red Box Scheme was handed over to the Chichester and Midhurst scheme representative, Lynsey, at Chichester College last week.
Lynsey tells us that with such a generous donation of £205 cash and a large box of sanitary protection goods, they will be able to also buy underwear, which while not usually donated, is often required. The items will be distributed across the area, which includes Bognor Regis. Lynsey also tells me that this includes small red boxes at local primary schools, secondary schools and colleges.
We have card a card from Lynsey, and as you can imagine, the about we were able to raise has been very gratefully received. Can I also add my personal thanks to you all for making this such a successful collection.
