Coffee mornings are held twice a year in March and October on a Saturday morning at the Pauline Thaw Centre (Age Concern), Dale Avenue, Hassocks.
As well as being an opportunity to meet friends for a coffee and a chat it enables the Society to raise funds for a local environmental charity or project. Stalls generally include books, bric-a-brac, and homemade cakes as well as tombola and a raffle.
At the 14th March coffee morning we raised £310 for Hurst Hedgehog Haven. The next coffee morning is on Saturday 3rd October 2020.
In recent years our coffee mornings have enabled us to make substantial donations to many worthwhile causes, including:
- The Working Horse Trust;
- The Village Tree Fund;
- The Monday Group;
- Chestnut Tree House Children`s Hospice;
- Dame Vera Lynn`s Children Charity;
- Environmental projects at Downlands School and Windmills School;
- Jill Windmill
