This year has already seen 1,700 pupils engaged in Alcohol Awareness Health and Alcohol Awareness Safety.

Commenting on the award from NWSS, Horsham Matters’ Substance Misuse Manager Dann Morris said "It is fantastic to receive further recognition and funding for the project and gain a new community partner with this much appreciated donation".

We are only too pleased to provide some financial help to this worthy project”. The supporters club have donated over £1,000 to local charities, junior football and youth sporting groups this year.

22nd April 2014

A really well attended NWSS spring meeting at the Holbrook Club last night. It was great to see a fully packed room with every seat taken, and especially pleasing to see so many youngsters in attendance as well.

A very interesting presentation by Albion in the Community CEO Michael Edwards on the work that AITC does in the Sussex area was followed by a lively Q&A session with first team players Craig Mackail-Smith and Inigo Calderon, an excellent evening. It was so good of both players to stay behind for the obligatory photo and autograph signing session. Macca & Calde were very relaxed, patient and friendly and showed why they are such firm favourites with the fans. Both are great ambassadors for the club, Brighton & Hove Albion should be very proud of them.

As always NWSS appreciates the way the club makes players and other Albion staff available for our meetings, it really does help to cement the relationship between the football club and its fans. The work that AITC do in the Sussex area doesn't go unnoticed either and we are pleased that we were able, in a small way, to give some exposure to the good work that it does.

Thanks to Albion's Paul Camillin for making the arrangements, BHA's very own Mr Snappy, Paul Hazlewood for attending and taking the photos and to Paul Felgate & Adrian Phillips in making the Holbrook Club available to us.
