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.
What a great start to the year. 400+ enjoyed Beauty & The Beast, Eastbourne. The cast came and met all the children and handed them a selection box to take home. Our thanks must go to SSussex Community Foundation the great Starr family, our Patron, Martyn Knight aka Dame Derrière and finally the wonderful abcfund committee, especially Sandra Palmer our secretary for making it all happen.
