The New Inn currently supports three local charities. As part of an ongoing project at The New Inn we are continuing to raise money for CANCER UNITED, ENABLE ME & ARUN COMMUNITY COORDINATED TRANSPORT.
SUNDAY 3RD APRIL 2016
The New Inn held a Family Fun Day and a short Sponsored Walk along the coast road in aid of our charities. 60 people took part and together we all raised a whopping £1590 which was divided between our three charities. We had a lot of fun as well, with Children's Games and a Disco too, and we have a lot of great photos to prove it!

Cancer United is a local support group and is for everyone whose lives have been changed by cancer. The aim of Cancer United is to offer support to patients who have just been diagnosed with cancer, are going through their treatment or who have come through it and need help getting some focus back in their lives. In addition we are all about supporting family, friends or carers.
The group will be for its members a place for a friendly chat, to be able to ask questions without feeling embarrassed. A place to share information and experiences, and get help and some down to earth advice about coping with treatment. Most importantly our mission is to focus positively on moving forward with our lives whilst offering a variety of complimentary therapies and fun activities. Whatever you want to do, we can do.
Since 2005, Enable Me has been working in the community to raise disability awareness and to help improve the lives of disabled people. We do this by providing a range of services, including workshops, assemblies, disability sports clubs, workforce development training modules and other unique activities that are delivered by a team of trained volunteers, the majority of whom are disabled.
Enable Me started life as a community development project, with Government SRB funding that facilitated work in schools in, Bognor Littlehampton & Worthing delivered by a small team of volunteers. In 2007, when SRB ended, Enable Me introduced the charging of fees for it services in order to become sustainable and to reinvest the surplus back into the work of the organisation.
Arun Co-Ordinated Community Transport is a registered not for profit charity based in Ford near Littlehampton. The charity was founded in February 1996 as a project by an organisation called Arun Council for Voluntary Services. Their initial responsibility was that of coordinating organisations that required transport with organisations who had transport so the community could undertake and fulfil their various commitments.
It was soon discovered that there was a growing need to transport people to doctors, dentists, hospitals and other appointments who either couldn’t use the charities own vehicles or public transport, so both the social car scheme and the Dial-A-Ride services were formed.
