There are some things in life you can’t change: the weather; the past; the end of Game of Thrones. One result you do have the power to decide is who will be the winner of our latest round of Proud to be Local charity funding.
Voters can choose from one of three nominated local groups seeking funding for a building project of their choice. The nominee with the most public votes will receive £500 from NYEs Building Supplies to help with its project.
Votes can be cast in three simple ways:
Voting closes at midnight on Sunday 1st September 2019.
The votes will be counted and the winner announced shortly after the closing date.
The three nominated groups are:
Girlguiding has been a part of Horsham for well over 100 years, and the Division’s current site has provided camping space to Brownies, Guides and Rangers in the area for more than 60 years. The site’s hall has seen many renovations and additions during this time, which have mainly been self-funded. Now the group is seeking to raise money to cover the cost of repairs to the hall roof, estimated at around £25,000.
The Phoenix Stroke Club
Based in Horsham, the club offers support to victims of stroke and neurological disorders, providing them with a variety of activities designed to build confidence and improve communication and mobility. It is currently in the process of raising funds to enlarge its building to provide more space for members, especially those in wheelchairs.
Queen Elizabeth II Silver Jubilee School
Opened in 1978, the QEII School educates children between the ages of 2-16 with severe learning difficulties and disabilities. The Horsham-based institution currently provides for 100 pupils, and is seeking to enrich their learning with improvements to its facilities, including the library and sensory garden.
Proud to be Local is a great way for people in the Sussex and Surrey area to engage with their local community and support our efforts to make a difference to the area. Make sure your favourite group receives the help it needs by registering your vote before the midnight deadline on Sunday 1st September. Until then, good luck to the nominees, enjoy the sunshine, and watch this space for news of the winner.
