Merry Christmas from all at The Bevern Trust

Sussex Disability charity The Bevern Trust, wish you all a Merry Christmas.

Merry Christmas from The Bevern Trust and thank you very much for your continued support this year. However you have been involved, either by volunteering, visiting one of our fabulous Sussex open gardens, buying a raffle ticket or even joining our Santa Run, your support has made a positive difference to the lives of the profoundly disabled people we care for at our home, Bevern View. Thank you.

To the Sussex businesses, community groups, Lions and Rotary, churches and schools who have all helped us throughout the year, we are most grateful, as we really couldn’t raise the funds and increase our awareness without you. Thank you.

We wish all of you, your family and friends a very Merry Christmas.

We still have much more to do…

Next year promises to be even more exciting as The Bevern Trust continues to grow and reach out to more people with profound disabilities and their families in Sussex through our new domiciliary home-care service. But we couldn’t do it without you.

Setting up a monthly gift of just £5 per month is easy, it just takes a few clicks. A regular gift could help us provide more care, freedom and opportunity for people in Sussex, living with highly complex needs. This wonderful way of supporting your local charity can allow people with a profound disability to access hydrotherapy sessions relieving pain and reducing anxiety or pay for days out, like trips to Brighton or Lewes, so residents can participate in their community and play a more active role in society. Thank you for your support.

 

Remember to Like our Facebook page or Follow us on Twitter to keep up to date with our latest news and events coming soon. We’ll keep you posted with all the great stuff coming up, but if you have your own ideas for an event that you would like to organise in aid of us, either at work or at home, then give us a call on 01273 021241 or email info@beverntrust.org and we’ll be on hand to get you started.

Merry Christmas!

Club raises hundreds for disability charity

Exel Club | Present Sussex Charity Gift

A group of retired freight workers from Sussex have helped to raise hundreds of pounds for Sussex Disability Charity, The Bevern Trust.

The Exel Retired Staff Association has more than 60 members in its club across Sussex. The club meets regularly for coach trips and for an annual dinner at the Royal Albion Hotel in Brighton.

This year the group also organised a number of events and fundraising activities and raised £440 for The Bevern Trust. The Sussex Disability Charity relies on voluntary gifts like this to allow people with disabilities to live with more freedom and opportunity. The charity needs to raise at least £12,000 each month to continue to care for people with profoundly complex needs in Sussex.

The charity is hoping the money raised from Exel can be match-funded by parent organisation the DHL UK Foundation.

Since then they have hosted such events as the Sussex Mid-Age Championship, the Sussex Seniors Open and a number of County Matches and Events, which is a great tribute to the quality of the course. 

The course is set in mature parkland and features superbly contoured greens, interesting natural water hazards and a host of strategically placed bunkers. It is maintained all year round to a very high standard, without the need for temporary tees and greens.

Mid Sussex Golf Club is within easy reach of DitchlingHaywards Heath and Burgess Hill and is only 30 minutes from Brighton or 20 minutes from Lewes.

Charity Golf Day mid sussex golf club Mid Sussex Golf Club | Charity Golf Day Mid Sussex golf

Charity Golf Day at Mid Sussex Golf Club

Mid Sussex Golf Course has a reputation for being a fun course to play for all standards of golfers off the forward tees, and so lends itself well as a golf day venue.

The 14th is the signature hole on the course – a par 5 which the big hitters can hit in two, but with water snaking through the hole, with bunkers waiting for every mistake and with a “switchback” green, there is also the danger of a scorecard wrecking double bogey or worse!

At least £20 from each golf place sold is donated to the Bevern Trust. Profits from the raffle or auction prizes will also be donated to the charity and all donations will directly help profoundly disabled people in Sussex to live their life in abundance. Thank you for your support.

Practice Facilities at Mid Sussex Golf Course

THE RANGE

The driving range is set in a most idyllic location in the peaceful countryside just a short pitch from the first tee. Grass tees are often in use as well as the all-weather mats. The range is now partly covered and so in use 12 months of the year. The serious practicer may want to consider the Practice facilities at great token rates. All societies, green fees and guests for the day will be able to warm up on the range on purchase of a token.

THE PITCHING AND BUNKER AREA

There is an area of land set aside solely for those who wish to tighten up their game from 100 yards and in. There are four “short” holes which can be played from tee to green. The main green is flanked by a practice bunker giving opportunity to rid yourself of your fear of sand.

THE PUTTING GREENS

You’ll find the main putting green right where it should be…..by the first tee. As it was constructed in keeping with the rest of the greens with regards to it’s contours, undulations and consistency of pace, you’ll know exactly what to expect when you venture out onto the course. The other putting green is conveniently close to the clubhouse bar – ideal should your practice not go to plan!


Christ Church Lewes

Christ Church Lewes support The Bevern Trust

Christ Church in Lewes selected The Bevern Trust as their local charity of the year in 2017 which has raised a wonderful £1200 so far. We would like to thank everyone who has donated and supported The Bevern Trust from the Church, it is very much appreciated.

On Sunday 9th July, Jonathan Spencer, Chief Executive of the charity was invited to the Service at Christ Church to talk to the congregation about the The Bevern Trust and explain how their fundraising and support has such a positive impact on the lives of the profoundly disabled people in Sussex that we care for.

The Bevern Trust must raise at least £12,000 each month to allow people with profound disabilities to live their lives in abundance. As a charity, we ensure each person we support has real choice and control over the care they need to achieve their goals, to live a fulfilling life and stay in contact with their family and the local community. We rely on the local community to raise the vital funds we need to do this and so we are delighted to have the support from Christ Church in Lewes this year.

If your Church or community group choose a local charity to support each year, The Bevern Trust would be the perfect match and can clearly demonstrate the positive impact of giving back to your local community. You can call 01273 021241 or email info@beverntrust.org for details of how your support can provide life-changing support for people in Sussex who live with the most complex needs, every day.

Jonathan Spencer is presented with a cheque for £2500 from John Clark at Lewes Golf Club

Chief Executive Jonathan Spencer said, ”As a local charity, we see wonderful acts of kindness and support, but to receive a gift like this from John Clark and Lewes Golf Club is absolutely fantastic and will make a huge difference to the lives of the people we care for.

”As we grow and will soon start to provide home care to disabled people in Sussex, we will look to more organisations and groups like this to help raise the funds we need to care for more local people.
”Our thanks go to John and all at Lewes Golf Club for their generous support.”

John Clark said ” The Captain at Lewes is in office for one year and an important part of the role is the Captain’s choice of charity. I chose the Bevern Trust because I had heard such good things about the work they do. When I visited them, I was so impressed with the set up and their care for profoundly disabled people.
“The money was raised by a Captain’s Day Charity Competition and the Rotary Club of Lewes organise a Charity Golf Day too and generously give a donation from the money they raise to the Captain’s Charity at The Golf Club. We also asked any member playing, who hit in to the nominated ‘Captain’s Bunker’, to make an extra donation!

The Bevern Trust would like to work with more golf clubs and organisations around Lewes who would like to support a local charity. Call us on 01273 021241 or email info@beverntrust.org. Each month we need to raise at least £15,000 to allow people with profound disabilities more freedom and opportunity to live their lives in abundance.
