News

The Apuldram Centre is delighted to share the news that WSCC have backed our crowdfunding campaign with a £2,500 pledge which means we’re just £126 away from our campaign total.

Please spread the word that our target total is in sight, you can pledge from just £2,  Thank you!  https://www.spacehive.com/apuldram   

At the end of our first week of crowdfunding on Spacehive we are celebrating our 50th pledge which takes our pledged total to £1,079. We’re the second highest backed project in West Sussex and we’re 10% of the way to our target. Thank you! Please continue to spread the word, you can pledge from just £2. https://www.spacehive.com/apuldram

Rachel Aslet-Clark, Apuldram’s General Manager writes “We are pitching to West Sussex County Council (WSCC)’s Community Initiative Fund for £5,000 towards a new contract gardening van and we have to do this via a crowd-funding site called Spacehive.
“Please visit our crowd-funding page by clicking this link https://www.spacehive.com/apuldram where you can read more about the project, the funding required and make a donation pledge starting from £2.   To be in with a chance of obtaining a donation from WSCC we need to demonstrate that we have plenty of crowdfunding backers, even if the pledges are only small.  WSCC make their decisions on 5th February so time is short; please make a pledge and share with others (note: no money is taken from your account until our target of £10,000 has been met). 

“FYI – The cost of the van is £21,000; we already have a £10,000 pledge from the Forbes Foundation but need to raise the rest of the funds; there is up to £5,000 available from WSCC.   To pitch to them we have to use the Spacehive crowdfunding platform.”


Thank you!

Trainees from the Apuldram Centre have been helping E watch (Chichester) Firefighters  wash their fire engine when they visited today.  Trainees have been sponsored to wash the fire engine and have also had the opportunity to try on Firefighter clothing and tour the appliances specialist equipment and the Firefighters have enjoyed Apuldram’s tea and cake!

We were delighted to be invited to the opening launch of Bunnings warehouse Chichester today and are looking forward to working  them going forward.  Their community team  recently visited the Day Centre and built a dedicated raised flower bed to enable our less mobile beneficiaries to garden while seated.  On Saturday 13th January and Sunday 14th January we will be at the store participating in their community “Sausage Sizzle” with all proceeds from BBQ sales going to the Apuldram Centre.

An exciting opportunity for the Apuldram Centre.

From 16th November through to 22nd December we will operate a pop up shop in Selsey, Thurs to Sat, 9.30am to 4.30pm.

The aim of the pop up shop is to sell goods made by Apuldram trainees from the day centre and Hub Club, to promote the work of the charity, to give trainees an opportunity to work alongside volunteers in the shop and to recruit more volunteers.

We look forward to seeing you in Selsey.
