Aviva Community Fund - we need your votes to help us create and sustain the Horsham Olive Tree Cancer Support Centre!
We are very excited that we will be opening a new Olive Tree Centre in Horsham early next year.  This will enable us to expand the great work that we have been doing in Crawley for over 25 years into Horsham.  Response to our pop-shop in Horsham's Swan Walk Shopping Centre and our participation in the Funday Sunday in Horsham Park earlier this year confirmed that there is a big demand in Horsham for our services. 
We have submitted a bid for funding from the annual Aviva Community Fund, but funding goes to those bids with the most votes, so please vote for us and encourage your friends, family, colleagues and neighbours to do the same!   Please click on this link to go to the Aviva Community Fund and vote for us.  You will need to create an account in order to cast your ten votes.  Thank  you, we are counting on your support!

The Olive Tree Trailblazers' WalkFit Group has been a tremendous success since its launch just a few weeks ago and already has many regulars who turn up each week to enjoy a sociable walk and chat in the fresh air.  Although walks to date have taken place on Tuesday evenings in Tilgate Park, from the first week of October onwards, they will take place on Sunday mornings and the meeting point will be at the Olive Tree.  Please visit the WalkFit Facebook page for timings.
