I am writing to thank Mark and Sally Biggs from Biggs Bakery in Littlehampton for their kind generosity and for making it a very special Christmas for William and his seven friends in Hawthorn house at The Children’s Trust, a national charity providing care, education and therapy for children with multiple disabilities and complex health needs.

The bakery raised £3,537, and Sally and Mark delivered personalised gifts for each child, as well as CD players and disco lights for every bedroom in the house.

Local businesses were also fantastic, donating raffle prizes. And a rock and roll group from Goring held an evening to raise £937, making the grand total an amazing £4,037! This money will buy specialised and much-needed equipment for the children.

On behalf of all the children in Hawthorn House and from all of us at The Children’s Trust, can we please send a huge thank you to Biggs Bakery for all its kind support and all the best for 2007.
