Christmas Quizzes A Fundraising Winner for Heads On

Heads On raised £1,500 at the East and West Sussex Quizzes on Friday 30th November - a fantastic evening of fundraising and a great night out for everyone who came along.  Well done to the winning teams - in Hastings St Lennys Land Skippers scored 93.5 - making them overall Sussex winners - and in Worthing The Japanese Badgers came first with 89 points. Congratulations!

Huge thanks to everyone who gave prizes so generously. We had some great donations at both events, local and not to local businesses were really generous in their support, notably the Kingsway Group who donated the winners hamper in Worthing, and Chandlers Hailsham who donated a raffle prize of a Mini for the weekend at the Hastings event.

We made £800 in Worthing and £700 in Hastings. The money raised in Worthing is going into a pot to be given out in 2019 in a round of grants for projects across Sussex. The money raised in Hastings will pay for a new kiln for service users at our Woodlands site – currently pottery made during occupational therapy sessions there has to be transported to Eastbourne to be fired.

"We are really grateful for all the support we have received at both events", said Sarah Walker, Fundraising Officer at Heads On. "From all the donations of raffle prizes, all the volunteers who we can't manage without and to everyone who attended both events. Thank you! We held two brilliant events and can't wait to do it all again in 2019!".
