Paul Rose, from the Red Cross of Constantine, said the money had come from the Grand Sovereign’s Care for Children Fund.
He said: “As head of Sussex, I was invited to nominate a charity to receive a donation, which clearly was successful.”
Paul was met by Diana Levantine, chairman and co-founder of the trust.
“I was extremely pleased to make the presentation of the cheque for £1,000, as it will be well used and will benefit those using the facilities,” he said.
“During the visit, I was reminded that although there are many children who are suffering from a terrible condition, they are all being well cared for.”
The trust was set up in 1993 and there are currently 92 Snowdrop children. Some spend time in hospital receiving treatment or undergoing an operation but most are at home.
