Advanta’s resident of the month award has been given to a pair of cyclists who raised more than £8,000 for St Wilfrid’s Hospice with a coast to coast ride across America.

Gary Bennett and Ana Lopez were presented with their award by Malcolm Toghill from Advanta. There is still time to sponsor the pair at www.justgiving.com/USA-CoastToCoast

They will also enjoy a complimentary meal for two at Ridgways in Meads Village as part of their award.

The Resident of the Month award was introduced to recognise unsung heroes in the local community and is jointly sponsored by Advanta Chartered Accountants and the Eastbourne Herald. To nominate email info@advanta-ca.com or call 01323 411222.
