The community event was funded by donations from the mayor of Polegate and Eastbourne Lions with the food prepared by volunteers.

The charity, set up in memory of Megan Brooks from Willingdon who died just days before her 18th birthday nine years ago, provides practical, emotional and financial support for families who lose their older children unexpectedly.

It has a support centre and coffee shop in High Street.
