Feb 13, 2020 | News

Coop - DonationThe Co-op store in Selsey chose Safe in Sussex to be their chosen charity and offered to do a book sale to raise funds for our charity.

The Co-op are great supporters of Safe in Sussex and have been very generous by always helping to raise awareness of our charity and provide our families and events with their support and good will along with raffle prizes and the provision of beverages and snacks for many of our events.

Diane Durkin said “the Co-op are always so supportive of our work and we enjoy working in partnership with them and the local people of Selsey” the book sale raised £1,303.80 which is gratefully received.

Diane Durkin, Community Fundraiser for Safe in Sussex said the book sale was a good way to support the vital work of Safe in Sussex. As a charity we rely on the goodwill of the community, as we constantly need to raise funds to provide services which enable people to recover from and live free from domestic abuse.

This year we plan to hold our second Shocking Shirts and Funky Frocks Day on 26th June and also a Mad Hatters Tea Party, details of these events will be on our website

Safe in Sussex offers advice, support, refuge, awareness and education for women, children and young people across West Sussex.  The charity has confidential refuges and a community refuge in Littlehampton.

The refuges are for women and children who flee domestic violence. The refuges are a place where women can feel safe and be given the vital support they need, both practical and emotional.

Safe in Sussex aims to increase the awareness and stop the cycle of domestic abuse in West Sussex.

The charity has a Countrywide Outreach service for men and women, we facilitate support groups for women in the community and we provide healthy relationship education programmes for Primary and Secondary schools in West Sussex.

Safe In Sussex receives 14% of its funding from the government. The rest is through grants, fundraising events, donations, legacies and corporate sponsorship.

Demand for our services grows every year and finding the money to fund our vital services gets tougher all the time.

We are fortunate to receive some grant funding from Children in Need, the National Lottery and local authority organisations, but we are constantly looking for new ways to attract funding.
