Community: noun. All people living in an area who share common interests.
Everybody at Robert Luff & Co lives in the area and we understand the importance of community, doing what we can to help good causes wherever possible.
How can we help you?
From sponsoring a jumble sale to equipment for a local school or funds for the hospital - we want to help!
As well as organising our own fundraising events in the Worthing, Goring and Lancing areas, we also take part in nationwide events such as Children in Need and Red Nose Day.
But we also appreciate that there are many smaller organisations or even individual for whom a donation will make an enormous difference.
That's why we are pleased to announce that from December 1st, 2019, we will be accepting suggestions from anybody that knows where a donation could make a difference.
Of course we do not have a limitless budget (unfortunately!), so we will look into each case on its merits and allocate as much as we can to help.
Donations will range from £10 to £500, subject to our donation budget. In some cases, reluctantly we will not be able to help at all. If this is the case, please re-apply after at least 3 months and if budgets allow, we may be able to assist.
To apply for a donation, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and make sure you put the subject line as CHARITY. We'll need your name, address, email, phone number, the amount of donation required, the recipient and the reason it is required in no more than 200 words.
You should hear back with a decision made within 30 days.
On March 24, 2017, we challenged ourselves to ride more than 100 miles on static bikes outside our Worthing branch office.
On the day we cycled 200 miles and raised around £900 for Red Nose Day.
On December 7, 2013, we held our attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the most elves in one place, all in aid of the two Worthing charities St Barnabas and Chestnut Tree House.
We broke the record with an estimated number of 1276 and raised an estimated £1500+ for our charities!
In December 2015 we refurbished Kamelia Kids, a local nursery for children of all abilities and specialising in the care of children with long term and life limiting illness needed help.
The nursery was in desperate need of a refurb but they'd had their funding pulled so couldn't afford to do it. We stepped in and rallied the community together to help us make the nursery look great. We even threw a Christmas party for the kids.
For Christmas 2014 we decided to deliver Christmas to a deserving local family.
We were inundated with nominations and we had some truly heartfelt stories of deserving local Worthing families which made it even harder to sit down and decide on the winner.
We surprised Jamie Decourcy and his 3 young boys when we delivered them all their presents, decorations and food for Christmas.
Local schools can never have enough equipment and we've been delighted to make donations to Elm Grove, Chesswood School, Heene Primary and a number of others too. Funds have been used for education materials, playground improvements and school trips.
We sponsor a team at Sir Robert Woodard Academy in Lancing.
In memory of Oliver Hare who died in 2017 aged just 22, we support the work of this wonderful organisation founded by Olly's mother, Ann Feloy. The organisation works to increase awareness of, and prevent suicide in young adults.
We donned woolly hats for an event organised by Worthing Churches Homeless Project, now called Turning Tides.
The idea was to raise awareness of homelessness, raise some well needed funds and have some fun doing it. We were very proud of the whole Robert Luff & Co team who got involved!
Director Mark Holding undertook an enormous challenge in June 2017.
He completed a gruelling 100 mile charity cycle challenge.
After setting out at 7am Mark completed the South Downs Way - from Winchester to Eastbourne - just after midnight on Saturday.
Mark, who lives with several conditions, including Crohn’s disease, ankylosing spondylitis and psoriasis, was fundraising for Chestnut Tree House Children’s Hospice. He raised a brilliant £1100.
