Sponsor a Child

We are currently caring for 25 children who all have sponsors but have a further 18 children who attend on a daily basis and are desperately in need of support. Please will you consider sponsoring a child?


Around the middle of each month every penny we receive in sponsorship is sent to the Centre. We cover all our admin & travel costs personally.


Sponsoring a child to stay at the Centre Monday to Friday and some weekends costs £20 a month. This includes everything they need such as good food, clothing, laundry, medical services when required, pastoral care, an introduction to basic English from a qualified teacher, attendance at primary school where appropriate and payment of staff salaries, utility bills and so on. If £20 is too much, jointly sponsoring works just as well, so £10 a month or less.


What can you expect in return? To start off we will allocate a child and provide you with their name and age, a photo or two and an outline of their circumstances. We will aim to provide an update on their progress, with pictures, two or three times a year.


This is what you need to do:


1) Tell us you would like to support a child (please state if you have a preference from the list), the amount and whether you are a UK taxpayer for Gift Aid purposes - click here to create an automatic email or get in touch with Anthony Summersell or Helen Bostock directly.


2) Set up a monthly Standing Order from your back to our charity bank account. You can do this online if you bank this way. Our HSBC Hailsham bank account sort code is 40-23-01, account 31393774 and account name 'Let Them Shine.


We will get in touch as soon as possible.


Very many thanks for your support.
