The Aldingbourne Trust aims to raise £3.78m

Since the doors of Henry Adams first opened more than 25 years ago, we’ve been supporting some of the great local charities and communities.  From April 2016, our chosen charity for the next two years will be The Aldingbourne Trust, an outstanding organisation which supports adults with learning disabilities to live independently.


Fun and fundraising in store over coming months

“It’s fantastic that Henry Adams have chosen to support our work,” said Martin Botting, organisational development manager of The Aldingbourne Trust. “They're already getting involved in lots of our fundraising events so it looks like being a fun and successful relationship. Every penny raised, whether it’s from house clearance donations or abseiling down the Spinnaker Tower, will help support our work in West Sussex.”


The Aldingbourne Trust needs to raise £3.78m to build a new visitors’ centre where they can train and employ more people with learning disabilities for a sustainable future.  


Lending a helping hand

Philip Jordan, our chief executive, added: “Each of our offices is set within a community so we believe it’s important to give something back through supporting fundraising efforts throughout the year.  The new centre for The Aldingbourne Trust is an extremely worthwhile project with a long-term legacy and we’ll be pulling out all the stops to help them on their way to their goals.”


Fancy joining in?

On 21 May, a charity walk is being held at Arundel Park along a 3, 8 or 18 mile circuit.  Everyone’s welcome and along with many others of the Trust’s supporters, teams from Henry Adams will be taking part, opting for a challenging three-legged-style to encourage extra sponsorship donations.  


Calling all golfers to Cowdray Park

A few days later on 25 May, the annual Golf Day is being held at Cowdray Park Golf Club, which we are proudly sponsoring.  If you would like to put forward a team to take part get in touch with the Aldingbourne Trust as soon as possible for what promises to be a fun, competitive day.


A great day out at The Aldingbourne Trust

“Everyone’s welcome to visit, especially young families as there’s plenty to see and do on site,” said Martin.  “Last year we had 60,000 visitors from the community and lots of fun events to take part in.” You can find The Aldingbourne Trust just outside Chichester.
