Thank you Mr Mayor, says charity

Lark in the Park Charitable Trust would like to thank the Mayor and Mayoress of Eastbourne Mike and Linda Thompson for selecting Lark in the Park their charity for 2012-2013.

Mike and Linda have both worked very hard throughout the year planning and executing such fundraisers as the abseil from the library,the speakeasy cabaret at the Winter Gardens and all the barbecues and quiz nights etc.

During the year they have achieved an amazing £12,500.00 for Lark in the Park. Brilliant!

I would also like to thank the businesses and the public who have supported these events.

The money raised has helped purchase a holiday home at Combe Haven so we can send many more families with special needs children on respite holidays.

We were very honoured to have been your chosen charity and we wish Mike all the very best with his second term in office.

Thank you.

Don’t forget the Lark in the Park fun weekend of June 29-30 at the Seside Rec – fun for all the family.
