Veteran BBC weatherman Michael Fish was the guest speaker at a sell-out charity dinner.

The event was held to mark an East Sussex charity’s 50th birthday celebrations.

Eastbourne Sovereign Rotary Club hosted the event at the Lansdowne Hotel, and around £1,000 was raised for SASBAH (the Sussex Association for spina bifida and hydrocephalus).

Michael Fish, who famously told television viewers there would not be a hurricane the night before the Great Storm of 1987, spoke about his long career at the BBC.

SASBAH was established in 1965 and fundraises to allow people affected by spina bifida and hydrocephalus to live their lives to the full.

The charity arranges a number of activities throughout the year.
