Felicity Louden, head of Heads On, Sussex Partnershop NHS Foundation Trust’s charity, which manages Chalkhill, said: “We are so grateful to the Burgess Hill District Lions Club for their amazing fundraising, without support from the community like this our work would be impossible.

“100 per cent of the funds raised will go towards supporting projects that go above and beyond what the NHS is able to provide, complementing people’s care and treatment to support patients’ recovery.”
