Matched funding and donations


AC Christopher Worsfold, Dorset, who is a manager with Lloyds Bank, has secured matched funding of £448 from the bank relative to the hours he spends volunteering with SOS. This is a tremendous boost for parcel funds with a proportionate sum reserved for the Assistance Dog Appeal. Well done Chris for accessing this funding.


AC Penny Keen, Littlehampton received a very generous donation of £3000 from the Broadwater Carnival Committee.   This was an amazing and very welcome surprise which will greatly assist with parcels and boost the Assistance Dog Appeal. Penny is also in the process of researching matched funding via Santander Bank and we hope this will be successful.



Elaine & Glenn’s ‘local’ customers and staff consistently raise funds for the parcels and have again donated £402 which was a welcome contribution for the Christmas Appeal.



Trustee, Sandra Davey was delighted to receive a cheque for £1000 towards parcel funds. A share of the proceeds of a 20 mile sponsored walk.


Linda Adkins, AC received a cheque for £1000, the proceeds from various fundraisers held in her local community.



AC Anji Young, who works in her local branch of Asda, recently participated in a joint bagpack at the store with her local Cadet Company, when she received £1231.36….50% of the total raised.


For the past few years, Kelly Felmingham and her band of ‘Nutty Knitters’ have raised hundreds of pounds for the parcels by knitting service personnel in miniature, for a very modest price in comparison to the time and effort involved.
