Polegate Scarecrows were out and about a few days before Christmas delivering their very own ‘Bags of Goodness’ from their latest appeal. These are care and support packages made up from generous donations from local businesses and residents and they are delivered straight to those who need them and also to frontline heroes.

From stationery and books, warm clothes and blankets to foods and luxuries recipients of our packages are supported with the items they may need plus some extra items to brighten their day!

It’s been a difficult year for many, and we have supported those that may benefit from a little boost whether they are suffering from illness, loneliness or must choose between food and presents!

The Community Fund said “Supporting those who help us in times of emergency and showing our gratitude is a lovely gesture to those who go above and beyond when we really need them! Especially those who volunteer their time!

The Polegate Scarecrows Community Fund was founded in November 2019 by Nathan Dunbar and was set up to empower community efforts to support those who need it. The successes have now raised over £4,000 for local charities, community groups and projects.

Nathan who, in recent years, has generated over £10,000 for good causes nationwide said “It’s an absolute pleasure to be able to show appreciation to those we take for granted day in day out. Services and volunteers will always be there when somebody cries for help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week even on Christmas Day so that’s why I’ve delivered them some sweet treats along with some supplies to keep them going when working long hours!”
