The gallery is housing the new charity exhibition from Sophie Mitchell, a photographer from Cuckfield, who was allowed rare access to Chestnut Tree House Hospice based in Angmering.


The photos have captured life there in all its colour as children with life-limiting conditions are given the chance to live ‘For The Now’.


Jill Housby, director of the gallery said: “We had a great turn out at the launch and it was particularly lovely that lots of children were there to see The Snowman - it definitely helped with the magic of the occasion.”
