Three local charities make D.W. Nye’s shortlist for funding

As part of builders’ merchant D.W. Nye’s ‘Proud to be Local’ campaign, three Horsham-based good causes have made it onto the shortlist of nominees, placing them one step closer to securing £500 of funding for their valuable work.

Over the course of the year, D.W. Nye is giving away a total of £2,000 split between four different community groups and charities across Sussex. In this third round of funding, the public are now being asked to cast their vote for the shortlisted group they want to win.

Everyone has an opportunity to directly affect the outcome by voting for the charity of their choice. The organisation with the most janeswishlogovotes will be declared the winner later in October. Should any charities or community groups wish to take part in the Proud to be Local campaign, one further opportunity to be considered will take place at the end of the year.

The three causes that have been shortlisted this time include:

Jane’s Wish, Horsham Jane’s Wish is a new charitable organisation inspired by Jane Manuel from Horsham following her brave battle with cancer. Established in her name, the purpose of the charity is to organise and fund days out and activities for children affected by cancer in Sussex.

Jack and Jill Pre-School, Roffey This local pre-school provides quality and inclusive childcare for children from the age of 2 until they begin


school. It offers a place where children can explore, create and discover the world in a safe and nurturing environment.

The Phoenix Stroke Club, Horsham The Phoenix Stroke Club supports stroke survivors by providing a range of stimulating activities that aim to restore confidence and improve communication and mobility following a stroke.

Nye’s depot in Kingsfold along the A24 and posting a token in the relevant voting box, clicking the chosen group on the poll that will be pinned to the top of D.W. Nye’s Facebook page, or by emailing proudtobelocal@dwnye.co.uk<mailto:proudtobelocal@dwnye.co.uk> and putting the name of the grou
