Fundraising at Christmas

Gordon Elliott had been raising money for the BHCT over the Christmas period in the memory of his grandson Jake, using some of his exotic animals.

Gordon Elliott


On the 22nd November, he took Gissey the camel to the Highgate Village Christmas event and dressed as one of the wise men.


Then, on the 6th December, he took Prancer the reindeer to an Enfield town show and on the following week, he took Prancer to the St Nicholas Fair in Winchmore Hill.  Everyone loved to see the animals and many people were interested in the work of the charity and gave him money towards it.

Gordon also took out Prancer on Christmas Day around Forty Hill in Enfield and again made people smile dressed as Santa Claus.

£1,900 was raised in donations from these events, which Gordon generously rounded up to £2,000.

So if you see a man with a camel or reindeer, then it could be Gordon raising money for charity.

Out Of The Blue Run/Walk

Out Of The Blue will be holding a run during Mental Health Awareness Week, Thursday 14th May at Ashburnham Place, Battle, in aid of The Beachy Head Chaplaincy Team, Dragonflies at FSN and Winston’s Wish.  There will be a 10K, 5K and a children’s race.  The event starts at 6.45pm.

To register for the run, please click on the link below:

Out Of The Blue is a fundraising group that was established in memory of Will Beckett who took his own life at Beachy Head in January 2013 aged 42.  This tragedy came as an incredible shock for his family and friends – it came simply ‘Out Of The Blue’.

Will’s family was supported, guided and inspired by three charities – Winston’s Wish, Dragonflies and The Beachy Head Chaplaincy Team and since then has raised an incredible amount of money for the three charities.

10K Mud Monster Run

Would you like to run through various obstacles and water slides, carrying tyres and logs in lots of cold mud swamps? No, I certainly wouldn’t, but thanks to Rebecca who did and raised nearly £500 for BHCT.  Rebecca ran in the 10K Mud Monster Run, which took place in East Grinstead on Sunday 12th October.

BHCT would like to thank Rebecca and all those that sponsored her.
