Every year Burgess Hill CC nominate a charity that it supports during the course of the cricket season. We do this because as a Community sports club we feel it is important to give back to the Community in which we participate. We are delighted to announce that this year’s charity is the Mid Sussex based Time4Children. We raise funds through the social functions we hold, donations made for teas and coffees that are provided at games and raffles. There are pots placed on the bar for your loose change. Please give generously whenever the opportunity arises. It’s for a good cause.
Giving children a better and brighter future.
Time 4 Children is a charity which aims to increase the emotional wellbeing, self-confidence & self-esteem of emotionally vulnerable children between the ages of 4 and 12 in the mid-Sussex area. They do this by providing weekly sessions for children to explore their worries, fears, anxieties or experiences with trained volunteer practitioners.
Time 4 Children is committed to offering the following services:
- An open-ended service, providing individual sessions using Reflective Listening and Non-Directive Play techniques, to support and help needy and vulnerable children who have experienced emotional upset and/or have behavioural problems, and are unable to express and communicate their thoughts and feelings positively.
- A high standard of training for volunteers to support children through Time 4 Children.
- Workshops for parents and carers, teaching the basic skills of Reflective Listening and Non-Directive Play, to help them engage and communicate with their children better.
