On 13 January 2016 nine local charities were invited to Hilton Avisford Park to receive a share of almost £5,865, from funds raised at the Hotel’s Charity Ball, A Night at the Casino Royale, which was held last October. The recipient charities were Walberton & Binsted CE Primary School, Littlehampton Swimming Club, Arundel C of E Primary School, Fethneys – Leonard Cheshire Disability, Barnham Trojans, Aldingbourne County Primary School, St Richard’s Nursery Unit, Chestnut Tree House and Springwood Infant & Junior School, who all attended the hotel to receive their cheques. Funds also went to continue the work of the Foundation improving the education and wellbeing of disabled, sick and disadvantaged young people and supporting children and young people to be ABLE to transform their lives for the better.
“It was really nice that the team members who nominated the various charities were also there. I wanted them to experience the event and to be with their nominated charity for the individual presentations. It was great to get them involved and there was real buzz about the hotel on the day and made the presentations that bit more personal.” Philippa Redwood, Hilton Avisford Park.
