Horsham businesses are giving their support to a charity Appeal which aims to create a brighter future for local children facing hardship or tragedy at the start of their lives.

Local charity Home-Start CHAMS supports young children and their families who are struggling with issues such as poverty, mental health problems, or domestic abuse.

Their Snowflake Appeal will raise much needed funds to make sure they can help vulnerable children in our area who need their help in the future.

Fundraising manager Jacquie Thomas said: “Our support for vulnerable children and their families helps to get them through tough times or cope with problems they’re experiencing.”

We help hundreds of vulnerable children each year, but there are lots more who we have to turn away because of lack of funds.”
