The Sussex Beacon was delighted to host Caroline Lucas, MP for Brighton Pavillion and Co-Leader of the Green Party of England and Wales, who visited the charity on Friday, 9th March 2018. This visit was a valuable opportunity for the Sussex Beacon’s Executive Director, Bill Puddicombe, to meet with Ms Lucas for the first time, and to provide insights into the charity’s plans and future projects for 2018 and beyond.
The meeting also highlighted the importance of the Sussex Beacon’s Inpatient Unit and Health & Wellbeing services, which are available to its service users. It was followed by a tour of the facilities, where Ms Lucas was able to meet the medical team working in the Inpatient Unit.
Ms Lucas said, “I am delighted to visit the Sussex Beacon today, and am inspired to see the strong commitment and dedication from its staff and volunteers. This is an exciting time for the charity going forward”.
