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.
