Each year the club selects a local charity to support. Members are invited to nominate any local charity during October, one will be selected and that will be our Charity for the following year.
Last year we raised £5000 for 'Parkinson uk -Sussex branch'
This year's 2017 charity is
Beating Blood Cancer since 1960
This charity was founded back in 1960 by the Eastwoods, a family who lost their 6 year old daughter Susan to leukaemia. At the time, most people thought nothing could be done, but Susan's parents saw things differently.
55 years on they've invested over half a billion pounds in research. Together with their researchers, supporters and donors, they've transformed the lives of people with leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma and other blood disorders - but they won't stop until every single person with blood cancer survives and can live their life to the full.
