Brief History of SHARP

Sydling Help and Relief Project (SHARP) has been raising money for charities since 1991 and, up to late November 2021 has raised over £48,000 for nominated charities.
Normally each year two charities are selected; one local or national and one overseas. During 2022. donations will be sent to Winston’s Wish (national) and Village Aid (overseas). 
Winston’s Wish is a bereavement charity which offers a wide range of practical support and guidance to bereaved children, their families and professionals. 
Village Aid works with local West African partner organisations which are at the heart of the communities they support. By providing essential skills and resources, this charity helps them to deliver education, livelihoods and conflict resolution projects.
Money is raised from Sydling village events, and the trend in recent years is that a good proportion of our funding is raised by the Big Breakfast, Sydling Marathon catering, the Safari Supper, the Village Quiz Night and the selling of The Sydling Book.
