East Ender's donation

“I was literally holding my breath as the bidding battle went on and on “said Juley Ayres Fundraising and Communications Manager “I just could not believe the amount raised. It was a really fabulous night, and we are so grateful to all the fantastic artists who performed and continue to support us so loyally. I can’t wait to tell the cast of East Enders just how much their donation raised for us”.

Vital fundraising

The funds raised by this charity evening are even more vital as The Sussex Beacon fights to raise the £150,000 needed to keep their Inpatient Unit open. To find out more about the work of The Sussex Beacon charity or to support the Beacon Appeal visit www.sussexbeacon.org.uk
