A SUSSEX charity is now £6,000 better off thanks to the generosity of Eastbourne’s business community.

The money was raised at the 2011 Eastbourne Achievers Awards, organised by Herald publishers Sussex Newspapers, and it will go to SASBAH, a charity which helps people with spina bifida and hydrocephalus.

On Tuesday (December 14) Keith Ridley, Herald editor-in-chief and Faiza Shafeek, Sussex Newspapers events and sponsorship co-ordinator, presented the cheque to SASBAH’s chairman Hilary Lewis.

The Achievers Awards will return in 2011 and will be held on the April 1 at the Winter Garden.
