Look Sussex is a local charity supporting families with Visually Impaired Children.
In 2015 they approached us with an emergency request - due to an interruption in their funding from another source, Look Sussex were in need of some urgent funds to cover the rent for their weekly youth club. The youth club usually hosts 20-30 visually impaired youngsters and provides activities such as storytelling, preparing recipes, quizzes and obstacles courses for attendees to take part in.
East Brighton Trust were happy to step in and assist; donating £1000 from the Colin Sayers Fund meaning the youth club could carry on uninterrupted, offering support to the children who attend it and their parents.
Local Youth Work project manager Adam Muirhead said "Look Sussex are extremely grateful for the support shown by the East Brighton Trust – in this instance it meant a project-sustaining lifeline and much needed continuity for young people who are getting so much out of the weekly sessions.”
