Miss Earth finalist gets behind the wheel to support the
international wildlife charity
Sussex Beauty Queen, Louise Maggs, swapped her ball gown for a car boot over the bank holiday weekend, when she spent the morning at Rusper Car Boot Sale, and raised over £160 for Horsham-based international wildlife charity, The Born Free Foundation.
Louise, 25, who lives in West Chiltington, will represent West Sussex at the 2014 Miss Earth finals, which will be held in Birmingham on 21st September. Now in its fourteenth, year, the contest is unique in the pageant world, as entrants need to be actively involved in promoting environmental awareness as part of the entry criteria.
Louise explains: “Miss Earth supports environmental awareness, animal protection and conservation issues, and being selected as one of the finalists gives us a collective opportunity to raise funds for projects and organisations based in the UK as part of the Beauty For A Cause award. The award is presented to the finalist who has made the most significant social contribution.”
Along with mum, Beverley Maggs, Louise braved an early start and set-up an impressive stall, having collected donated items from family, friends and the foundation itself, in the run-up to the big day.
She said: “I chose to support the Born Free Foundation because I have a real passion for animals! I studied for a Bsc(hons) in Animal Management at Writtle College, which is part of the University of Essex, and have my own local dog walking and pet care business locally. I was keen to support an animal welfare charity which is a local to West Sussex and Born Free is exactly that. I was amazed when I visited their head offices in Horsham, by the extent of the projects which they are involved in to protect some of the most vulnerable animals and communities all around the world.”
Joanne Bartholomew, Born Free’s Events and Fundraising Co-ordinator said: “We’re extremely grateful to Louise and her mum for their brilliant fundraising efforts over the bank holiday weekend and they were so lucky with the weather! Money raised at events like this is really vital to continue our compassionate conservation work and we are fortunate to have some very dedicated and passionate supporters at the Born Free Foundation.”

With no game this Saturday and our next home match on the 10th January when we play MK Dons – it’s a good long break from football
However, I now need to confirm details with the hotel – those who have not paid their deposits I need this as soon as possible to confirm the rooms.
FLEETWOOD AWAY – 2 NIGHTS IN BLACKPOOL – Match now on as both team are out of this seasons F A Cup – please book for this overnighter if you haven’t already done..
We are in the process of confirming the weekender to Fleetwood in January – the two night stop will be at the Leverdale Hotel in Blackpool – We travel up on Friday 23rd January and travel back on Sunday, leaving the hotel at about 9.30am after breakfast. Cost of the weekend will be £85.00 per person – We will depart from the New Moon on the Friday at 9.30am, and will have a stop for a buffet lunch at the White Lion at Barthomley (to be confirmed) – The £85.00 includes 2 nights B & B in Blackpool. Coach travel and buffet lunch on the way up. Like previously the coach will park up on arrival at the hotel and then we will use the trams to Fleetwood on the Saturday to the game.
Saturday 16th January 2015 – Rochdale – our first ever trip to Spotlands for a match. So hopefully to some it will be a new ground to visit, so with a bit of luck more supporters making the trip. I will be posting the information about this trip next week, hopefully with some good news for supporters travelling with us. Early info I can give is that we will be departing the New Moon at 7.00am with a stop at the White Lion, Barthomley on the way up.
Welcome to the Crawley Town Supporters Travel Group – to be known as GH Coaches
As you can see we now have an official name, we have associate membership of the FSF with our own coach insurance, a bank account and our own travel web site, Facebook and Twitter pages. It’s been a very emotional few weeks since we decided to run coaches to the away games – We would thank everyone who has helped getting everything set up for our first trip to Cheltenham on Saturday 27th August 2011. We are disappointed at the comments being made by others and contrary to what they are indicating, Kevin and I are not taking or will not take any money out, everyone who travels on our coach will pay the appropriate fare – we can confirm that any profits made will be solely used to help subsidise our future coaches and at the end of the season any surplus will be carried over. If, in the future our venture folds, then any profit made we will donated to the Chestnut Tree Charity. Bill Doidge & Tara Greenway will be overseeing the accounts and acting as signatories on the cheques, which we would thank them for their involvement. We would also than those supporters who have made donations to the setting up of the Travel Group.
CRAWLEY LUXURY COACHES – Our Coach provider
We would like to thank Dave, Gavin and Darren Brown for their help and assistance in setting this venture up, without that we wouldn’t be in the situation today where we can offer our supporters an alternative travel to away games.
Over the past 20 years our partnership as the Crawley Town Supporters Club has been able to offer supporters a cheap way of getting to games, and we intend to keep this going this season and beyond under our new identity. We know that we are working with a terrific coach company who have great respect in the industry – and whose contingency plans when we went to Manchester for the FA Cup match were very impressive – the work that went on behind the scenes for the big day were immense. David, Kevin and I learnt a lot from the experience, something we all will hopefully use again.
THE HALF MOON
We have now returned to the Half Moon as our base from January 2014 after a few months away, we will be selling tickets and the “Time of the last Crawley goal” will return – we will be sitting at the Half Moon on Saturday home match days – from 12.15pm until 2.15pm, and possible for a short time after the game. If you come into the pub we are situated immediately to your right, by the door. On the evening home games we will be at there from 6.00pm until 7.15pm. We would like to thank Nick, Binny and Chris for use of their facilities. If you can’t get to the Half Moon, then please ring Alain (07771-792346 or E mail Alain.firstname.lastname@example.org).
On the return journey, we will still do our drop off’s via Northgate and the Town Centre.
Now its up to you, the supporters now have a choice – you can either use us, the Alliance or the Jacko Express for your method of getting to away games.
This is the start of our second season as GH Coaches and we would like to thank Dave Brown and Crawley Luxury Coaches for their continuing support. Further details of coach travel to other matches will be published during the season as we go.
Again this season, we will not have a membership scheme where one supporter pays more than another to travel, any supporter can travel on ourcoaches for the same fare – some matches we will offer the under 16’s cheaper travel, and hopefully if everything goes as well as last season some fantastic fares for everyone. In the mean time and getting ready for next season please can you print & fill in the GH Form below so that we have contact and emergency details for our records.
