Pelham House Charities
St Andrew’s Lane, Lewes, East Sussex, BN7 1UW
We are proud to support two local charities the Sussex Wildlife Trust & Rockinghorse Children's Charity.
In October 2016 hundreds of unaccompanied asylum-seeking children stuck in the Calais Jungle, France’s unofficial refugee camp, were desperately waiting to be taken into safety to the UK under the Dubs amendment and Dublin 3 family reunion laws. Enthum House continues supporting Lord Alf Dubs and Safe Passage to persuade the UK Government to honour its commitment and give these children sanctuary in the UK.
Rockinghorse is a Brighton-based charity which has been supporting children for over 45 years. It was set up in 1967 by Dr Trevor Mann, who recognised there was a real need for additional resources to improve healthcare services for sick children and babies.
- We are the official fundraising arm of the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital (the Alex).
- We also support the Trevor Mann Baby Unit (TMBU), where we raise money for life-saving and cutting-edge medical equipment, while ensuring that children are treated in an environment that is better suited to their needs.
We believe no matter where they are, children should be allowed to be children.
Working in partnership with the Alex and TMBU, we strive to make services stimulating, cutting edge and accessible for the many babies, children and teenagers who need them.
Sussex Wildlife Trust
The Sussex Wildlife Trust was formed in 1961, and is now the largest conservation organisation dedicated to conserving the natural heritage of Sussex.
One of the most wooded counties in the UK, Sussex is a splendid county with a rich history, with dramatic coastline, grazing marshes, the glorious chalk hills of the South Downs and internationally rare heathland.
The aim of the Sussex Wildlife Trust is to conserve the Sussex landscape, wildlife, and its habitats, and to use its knowledge and expertise to help the people of Sussex to enjoy, understand and take action to this end.
With more than 33,000 members and 6,000 junior ‘Wildlife Watch’ members, the Trust manages 4,500 acres of land, which include some of the finest wild places in Sussex. Over 450 active volunteers are involved in all aspects of our work and together work more than 6,500 days a year for the Trust.
The Trusts renowned schools programme, together with an extensive programme of courses and events enables people to understand and respect the habitats and wildlife in Sussex.
We speak out and are listened to on all the major environmental issues that impact on life in Sussex. We work with landowners, local and national bodies to achieve a better environment within which the economy can thrive and at a local level with people in villages and towns enabling them to manage a local green space for wildlife.
The Trust is an important information centre on habitat, wildlife and conservation issues. ’WildCall’ is a telephone information service for anyone with a query on conservation, from a concern about a planning application to what to do with an injured wild animal. The Trust houses the Sussex Biodiversity Records Centre which holds over 3,200,000 species records across Sussex.
