On 14th June 2019 the Lions Club presented Time 4 Children with a cheque for an astonishing £15,000

Haywards Heath charity Time 4 Children was absolutely delighted to be the chosen beneficiary of this year’s Haywards Lions Club Annual Swimarathon on Good Friday.

Time 4 Children provides free long term one-to-one sessions of Emotional Listening Support to around 50 children every year in local primary schools. The charity has helped more than 800 children since it was founded in 2005.

Vicky Chalmers MBE and Founder of Time 4 Children said “We are extremely grateful to the Lions Club for choosing our charity this year and who all worked tirelessly to make the Swimarathon happen. We give an enormous and huge thank you to all the teams in our community who took part in the Swimarathon and to everyone who sponsored the teams. So many local schools and organisations got involved, which was incredibly heart-warming and shows just how important local people feel young children’s emotional well-being is. Every penny raised will go directly towards reaching and giving more children a Listening Ear when they need it most”.

Denys Hutson, current President of Haywards Heath Lions Club said “The Lions Club is proud to have helped such a worthy and valuable small local charity. Time 4 Children along with the local community are the real heroes here”.
