Brief History of SHARP

SHARP has been raising funds for good causes for about 30 years raising a total of over £55000.

The two charities we have supported during 2022 & 2023 are Winston’s Wish  (local) and Village Aid in Africa. They have each received £3000!

Funds raised during 2024 & 2025 will be used to support Amelia’s Rainbow and Magic Breakfast.

Amelia’s Rainbow

Supports children in Dorset and the surrounding area who are suffering from terminal, life-limiting, serious and chronic illnesses. They fund days out, games, toys, social activities, holidays etc.

Magic Breakfast

Offers breakfasts and expert advice to tackle morning hunger in schools across England and Scotland, helping more than 200,000 children every day.


Money is raised from Sydling village events, and the trend in recent years is that a good proportion of our funding is raised by the Big Breakfast, Sydling Marathon catering, the Safari Supper, the Village Quiz Night and the selling of The Sydling Book.
