AN EASTBOURNE hotelier has donated £500 to the MP’s Christmas Appeal for the Salvation Army.
Sheikh Abid Gulzar, pictured above with Stephen Lloyd, runs the Lions Hotels in Eastbourne, and he handed over a cheque to the MP in the run up to Christmas. Mr Lloyd said, “I appreciate Sheikh Abid Gulzar’s generous gift to my Christmas Appeal on behalf of Eastbourne Salvation Army. It brings the total raised, in just two weeks, to more than £1,500. Eastbourne residents always go that extra mile to help and it’s just one of the reasons why I love this town.”
Mr Gulzar said, “Since my early days I have always been a supporter of Eastbourne as a town and its people as my family. Any little gesture or help I can do to boost the growth and support the development will always be there.”
