Positive Practice Awards 2023 raffle raises £866 for Heads On

On Thursday evening (9 November) 2023 we celebrated the outstanding dedication of all Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust staff, volunteers, experts by experience and carers at the Positive Practice Awards 2023.

We were joined by nearly 600 nominees that were recognised for going above and beyond to provide outstanding care for the communities we serve.
A huge congratulations to everyone who was nominated, shortlisted and received an award - you are all shining stars!

Heads On were delighted to be part of the event, offering an award for Heads On Heroes, which was an award for an individual or team for going above and beyond their usual role to make a positive difference to patient care. This could be working in partnership with Heads On, fundraising, or projects that improve the experience of service users and carers.

Out of all the fantastic nominees for the category Jack Pumphrey from Mill View Hospital won the gold, Courtney Everett from the Rapid Response Service won silver and Deborah Macgregor from Bognor & Chichester Early Intervention in Psychosis Service won bronze.

To help raise further funds to support the Service Users that come to Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust each year, Heads On held a luxurious raffle. We would like to thank everyone who took part for helping us to raise a kind £866 and for all the companies who donated their generous gifts. We are so grateful to The Winston Estate for donating a voucher for wine tasting and a vineyard tour for two, the Doubletree by Hilton Brighton Metropole providing an afternoon tea for two gift voucher and The Grand Hotel Brighton offering an overnight stay for two for some lucky raffle winners.
