Porsche Mid-Sussex joins the Bag It and Give Campaign

Porsche Centre Mid-Sussex joins the Bag It and Give Campaign

21/4/2017

As part of Porsche Centre Mid-Sussex's ongoing support of Chestnut Tree House, a local Sussex charity, the Centre recently took part in the ‘Bag it and Give’ initiative donating clothes and other items to sell in their eight charity shops located across East and West Sussex.

Chestnut Tree House is the only children’s hospice in Sussex and cares for over 280 children, from newborn babies to young adults aged 25 from Sussex and South East Hampshire with progressive-life-limiting conditions. The hospice offers support for the whole family and costs nearly £3 million per year to run. With only eight pence per pound being funded by the government, the charity relies heavily on donations and fundraising.

The Porsche Centre Mid-Sussex team donated clothes, books, games and toys which were picked up last week by the retail team to be sorted and taken to their charity shops.

Andrew Crabb, Centre Principal at Porsche Centre Mid-Sussex commented: “When we heard about the 'Bag it and Give' initiative we were all keen to take part and support Chestnut Tree House. Hopefully the money raised from the sales will go towards helping meet the costs of providing the care to the children and families that need our support.”

Please visit Chestnut Tree House website if you are interested in the work they do, want to find out about their upcoming events or ways you can donate, volunteer or fundraise for such a worthwhile charity.
