Sweet dreams: Rudridge supports children's charity appeal

This autumn we're delighted to continue our support for a fantastic charity that helps children and young people with complex disabilities and health needs. 

The Chailey Heritage Foundation is based near Lewes, East Sussex, and since it was founded in 1903 it has helped thousands of children to pursue their potential in the face of profound challenges. 

Last Christmas, we donated £500 worth of Christmas presents to the charity's school, and this year we're donating the same amount to a major new fundraising drive – the D.R.E.A.M. Centre Appeal.

A massive £2.6 million is needed to build the centre, which will be an accessible indoor activity space where children and young people can participate in a variety of arts and physical activities. 

The D.R.E.A.M. centre will have a large indoor sports court for wheelchair football and powered wheelchair driving, a raised stage for drama and dance, a built-in trampoline and a 4-d sensory learning environment. 

We're thrilled to play a small part in helping to raise the funds as the charity launches its Big Give Christmas Challenge. The funds we are pledging will be used to match donations made by the general public during Christmas Challenge Week, which runs from 28th November to 5th December.

Jenny Hanraads, Development Manager at Chailey Heritage Foundation, said: "As the festive season approaches, we decided to give our appeal a boost by taking part in the Big Give's Christmas Challenge. Rudridge instantly pledged their support, and we couldn't be more grateful to them for their generosity."

Darren Price, Group Operations Manager at Rudridge, added: "The plans for the D.R.E.A.M. Centre are tremendously exciting. Once the centre is built, it will provide so many new opportunities for the children, and of course it will be a huge support to their families too.  We wish the Chailey Heritage Foundation all the very best in helping to meet their fundraising targets."
