Dolphin House Celebrate 25 Year Anniversary With A New Look & Charity Auction

The Dolphin House charity has been active in our local community for a quarter-of-a-century.
Marisa Guthrie, Executive Director, @ Dolphin House

The charity is widely known as The Children's Clinic or Dolphin House Clinic, the only organization in the UK (and possibly Europe) to provide natural medicine for babies, children and young people irrespective of their family's ability to pay.

Over the years the charity has helped many families in and around Brighton.

In fact many people who were treated as children at the clinic, are now bringing their own children for treatment, a real testament to the great value the charity has for the local community.

As part of the celebrations, Dolphin House will be launching a brand new logo and will be holding a fundraising auction at the Old Market theatre on Thursday 13th November.

Marisa Guthrie, Executive Director, said: "We thought it was important to mark this auspicious birthday with a new look for the charity and a really special event.

"It is not always easy surviving and thriving as a charity in today's climate, so we are very proud of this achievement, and want to celebrate by increasing awareness of what the charity does and how people in the local community can help us and continue to support us for another 25 years."


The charity was started in 1983 by acupuncturist Julian Scott who travelled to China to study the treatment of children by acupuncture.

With the knowledge of the effectiveness of this treatment for acute and chronic conditions, he opened the first clinic outside China specializing in the treatment of sick children by acupuncture.

From these beginnings the charity developed into a multi-disciplinary clinic for natural medicine, and, as well as acupuncture treatments provided include paediatric osteopathy, homeopathy, herbal medicine, creative arts therapy and baby massage courses for parents.

Dr Barbara Einhorn, Chair Of Trustees, added: "With the funds raised we are aiming to raise funds to support our main services at the clinic, and extend our outreach services in the more deprived areas in the city.

"We really hope that this is an event that will be remembered for years to come!"


Tickets for the auction will go on sale at the beginning of October and can be obtained either from Dolphin House shop or online at thedolphinhouseshop.org.uk

The ticket will include a champagne reception and a scrumptious buffet provided by Bill's, of Lewes, bands, DJs, and the chance to take part in the auction with fabulous prizes.

Dolphin House is looking for luxurious prizes from local businesses for the auction so if you think you can help, please contact Marisa Guthrie at applecore@thechildrensclinic.org.uk
