News: Businesses – Support a Local Charity!

Posted on 12th December 2018

Here at MSVA we always do an office Secret Santa. This year it was suggested that we do  something charitable with our £5.00 that we usually put into Secret Santa rather than buying a present. We decided on a local  charity that supports homeless people as this is very much on our hearts  at this time of year. Along with our colleagues from  Sussex Oakleaf, we have also been supporting the King’s Church Hamper Project  which will provide people  who have fallen on hard times with some Christmas extras.

MSVA can help businesses  who want to support  a local charity  with fundraising or in a practical way – gardening or decorating.  Many of our member groups are small grassroots charities  who would really benefit from  the  help and support of a local business. If you want to start 2019 by doing something  in the community give MSVA a call and we will point you in the right direction.
