2014 Winter Fayre Fundraiser


A big thank you to all those who helped organise and run the stalls for our fundraising event. We raised an incredible £2,800 through sales on the day. We would not be able to do it without the continued support from the Apuldram Centre volunteers and fundraising team. The Centre was a hive of activity including raffles, christmas carols, tombolas, stalls, wooden reindeers, Santa’s Groto, silent auction, christmas lights, hot dogs, mulled wine and mince pies plus much more.

Apuldram Farewells to Pam + Rosie


Two long serving Apuldram staff said tearful farewells to the Apuldram Centre last month. Both Pam Porter and Rosie Peskett enjoyed leaving parties at the Centre as a little thank you for all their hard work over the years. Fish n chips were the order of the day for trainees and staff as we surprised Pam Porter with a retirement party on her last day after 11 years service. On the 30th April 2014, the Apuldram Centre also said goodbye to Rosie Peskett with a BBQ and drinks wishing her well in the future. See pictures and more details below.

Cricket Coaching & Matches

Service users have been lucky enough to be provided cricket coaching at a number of venues including Pagham and Arundel Cricket clubs by local coach Ben Cook. The coaching sessions have helped improve their co-ordination, timing, accuracy and working as part of a team.

Furthermore, Apuldram have been playing against other Centres in a tournament at the home of Sussex cricket club. We have a very competitive bunch here at Apuldram, when we win everyone hears about it!
