Home-Start Arun, Worthing and Adur have been the House Charity for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars (Chichester) for the past year and the final total of money raised is in….. a target busting £32,020.

The different staff teams at Rolls-Royce held a number of events and sponsored activities including; classic cars and breakfast morning, cake bakes, sponsored Firewalk, crew in Arundel Dragon Board Race, grand Christmas raffle, collecting tins in the canteen and many things. All the funds raised will support local families with children under 5 going through challenging times.
