The IMPACT Lunch Club in Sussex has been dining out since 1997. Members meet ten times a year to enjoy a talk by a guest speaker and socialise in a local pub or restaurant. A donation to IMPACT is included in the cost of the meal.

Over the years, the Lunch Club has supported numerous projects and contributed over £500,000 towards our work to prevent and treat needless disability throughout Africa and Asia.

For example, in 2016, the Club funded a borehole to provide clean water at Titha Primary School, in the drylands of Kenya. Children no longer fall sick from waterborne diseases or have to walk long distances to collect water.

The cost of a lunch, usually with a coffee, varies between £25—£30 (plus the cost of individually ordered drinks).

Membership costs £25 a year.

The Club would love to welcome new members, or advise anyone setting up something similar in their area. For more information please contact Lunch Club Secretary Douglas Drummond.
