Friday 11th October was simply fantastic with two winning community nominations and £1,700 awarded to the charity. Supported Living Team Leader, Julie Sandalls was presented with an award in recognition of her outstanding community fundraising efforts. Julie attended a glitzy evening at the Hilton Hotel hosted by Spirit FM and was presented with a £200 cheque for the Apuldram Centre by Rachel Drury, Cineworld Chichester Manager who sponsored the Community Hero award. Just down the road at the Black Rabbit in Arundel, Lillian and Support Worker, Sue Applin accepted a £1,500 cheque after a successful nomination to local brewery, Hall and Woodhouse Community Chest. Lillian and Sue are seen in their photo with Gary Shipton, Editor of Chichester Observer.
We have a wide range of volunteering opportunities both at our dedicated Day Centre and in central Chichester at “Hub Club”.
Our volunteers are invaluable in enabling us to deliver an enhanced person centered service to the people who we support. Volunteering opportunities are varied and flexible to meet mutual needs.
A large majority of our volunteers are local to the community of Chichester and surrounding suburbs and varying in age, life and work experiences, but all have a passion for making a difference and having fun.
No previous experience is required however we would like you to be; friendly, understanding, responsible, reliable and caring.
If you are interested in finding out more, or would like to offer your services, please give us a call on 01243 783370 for a chat or email firstname.lastname@example.org

Coffee, Cake & Celebrate.
inspired? We are always on the look-out for amazing people to go the extra mile and organise a fundraiser
themselves. During our 30th
anniversary year we want to reach out to our supporters and those we don’t yet
know and ask them to host a “Coffee, Cake
& Celebrate” event in aid of the Apuldram Centre. It could be as simple as inviting a few friends round to your house for a cup of coffee, a piece of cake and a chat or something bigger!
The Apuldram Centre will provide two tray bakes to support the event, a choice of chocolate brownie, lemon drizzle or flap jack – one week’s notice required. We will also provide a donation bucket and all we ask for in return is a minimum of £30 to be raised from the event.
To list your event please call into the office or email email@example.com. A registration form will be sent to you, along with a pack. Should you require help, we may be able to offer support to publicise your event.
The Apuldram Centre is delighted to be participating again this year in the National Garden Scheme. Please see below for our open day dates. As usual our cafe will be open for light refreshments. We would love to see you here!
