Welcome to the Anne Bickmore Children's Fund

We are a registered children’s charity based in Sussex. We raise money in order to fund trips and treats for disadvantaged children and their families. We give our time and experience, we take nothing. All money raised goes directly to our families.

Our objectives are:

  • The relief of poverty, hardship and distress among children, young people and their families or carers, particularly those with disabilities or special needs, by such exclusively charitable means as the Trustees shall from time to time determine.
  • We hope to put a smile on the faces of families who live with illness and disabilities day in and day out, year in and year out.

We ran a very successful children’s tombola and collected money in our boxes. Make A Difference Day girls from Lloyds Bank were there to help us. Our thanks must go to Jackie, Megan and Laura and also to Lloyds Bank who kindly donated the children’s toys for the event.

“ I just wanted to on behalf of all our families thank you so much for yesterday. We had a lovely day.” Kerry from Sweet Peas

 “Thank you so very very much to the ABC fund for such a wonderful day at Paradise Park, Newhaven the children had a fantastic time and it was the first ever visit for half of the families so you have opened up more doors for our families to spend some special time together in a place they would never of been to if it wasn’t for you!! Thanks once again” Sharon and all the little Darlings
