Newhaven Charity Car Boot Sale
On a sunny Saturday at the end of April, Searchlight and NCDA held a fund raising Car Boot and Cake Sale at Basepoint’s Newhaven Enterprise Centre.There were plenty of sellers set up around the car park with a variety of items to sell and Maralyn and her famous cakes along with a coffee stall were just inside in the break-out area providing somewhere for buyers to sit and enjoy their refreshments and view the raffle prizes. £250 was raised, which will be doubled by the ACT Foundation and will go to Searchlight, a local charity offering a residential, day care and respite centre for adults with physical and/or learning disabilities. They provide quality care with an over-riding emphasis on the personal development of the individual, no matter what their abilities. Everyone – staff and clients alike – contributes to and benefits from the enormous sense of community that exists there.
