Father Christmas is still at County Mall until Christmas Eve, he has set up home in Debenhams on the Top Floor Children’s Department and will be around to meet all the good little boys and girls of Sussex everyday from 11.00-5.00pm, however on Christmas Eve he will be closing at 3.00pm to get his reindeer fed and ready for the busy night ahead…… visiting Father Christmas is absolutely free and every good little boy and girl will receive a free present.
This Christmas, County Mall is giving away £6,000 between three local charities: Home Start, Rockinghorse and Chestnut’s Challenge.
We are asking you to vote at our interactive Christmas tree within the centre, or simply vote here on our website. Voting will be open until 24th December 2010.
After Christmas, the £6,000 fund will be split between the charities and they will receive £3k, £2k and £1k depending on the number of votes they received.
Here’s a little information about the three charities:
Home-Start is a charity consisting of community volunteers supporting local families coping with bereavement, ill health, financial difficulties, depression, disability and isolation.
They offer friendly, practical support in the home and through family groups.
An independent local charity, which aims to make life better for sick and disabled children across Sussex. Rockinghorse has been making life better for sick children for 43 years, by supporting children’s hospitals respite centres across the county.
Chestnut Tree House
For every life-limited local child that Chestnut Tree House is caring for, there is another child somewhere in Sussex that they are not yet caring for due to lack of funding. Please help them meet the challenge of reaching every one of them. Chestnut Tree House is the only children’s hospice in Sussex, providing practical and emotional support, expert advice and dedicated care for local families with children affected by cancer, muscular dystrophy and other life-limiting illnesses.
