We need real, down to earth people like YOU who are warm-hearted, kind and with a good sense of humour to help children living in families who are under- resourced and having a hard time. Each befriender is matched with a child aged 4-14 whom they commit to taking out most weekends for around 3 hours, spending quality 1:1 time together and building a relationship. We work in partnership with families offering extra support at a time when it is most needed. You won’t be in it alone; we give training and are here for you every step of the way.

Come to our All-day Fund Raising Garden Party for Fun in Action on Sat 27th June - 12pm to 10pm. There's going to be a great line up of musicians to entertain you, including nine live acts, DJ’s between sets, two barbeques with veggie and non veggie food options, craft and plant stalls, beer, games for the kids, a raffle, lucky dip and two five foot ‘body puppets’ dancing around to keep things jolly! Loads of activities for children including a lucky dip, stalls and games.
Entry to the event is free but guests will be asked for voluntary contributions to a ‘hat’ that will go round during the day. In case of wet weather the event will still go ahead under cover.
Beside the Birdbath is an annual event organised by Paul Stapleton and a group of other local musicians and their friends and families. A previous charity that they supported was ‘Stay Out Late’ (Gig Buddies), but they regularly raise money for various local charities, in particular the Brighton Food Bank.
How to get there: Greenfield Crescent is on the 5B bus route towards Hollingbury and there are regular buses. If you need directions or have any questions, please get in touch.
