We have had to suspend drop in events for now.
We are currently looking for more volunteers in the area.
If you are able to help occasionally, please email enquiries@BarrettsWessex.org.uk

A raffle and auction together with general donations on top of the box office takings netted a magnificent total of £1121.84 for Barrett's Wessex.
Our Bus Back Adverts
A number of buses running around the Bognor and Chichester areas during February helped raise awareness.
This is following from similar successful campaigns in Southampton in 2017, Birmingham in 2018 and Basingstoke in 2019.

One person an hour dies from oesophageal cancer in UK. Based on the projected numbers expected to see the adverts, we predict 19 people's lives could be saved by heeding the message.
