Chichester District Food Bank
Our foodbank is part of The Trussell Trust’s network of 428 foodbanks, working to tackle food poverty and hunger in our local communities, as well as across the UK.

Our services include support at home, a specialist palliative care ward, out-patients clinics, and supportive therapies.

Essex & Herts Air Ambulance (EHAAT)
A truly life-saving Charity kept airborne thanks to everyone who plays their Lottery, makes a donation, enjoys their events, fundraises and volunteers in aid of EHAAT. Their aim is to save lives, reduce or prevent disability, or suffering from critical illness and injury, by delivering a first class pre-hospital emergency medical service to the people of Essex, Hertfordshire and surrounding areas.
