Friends gathered at Langney Sports Club for a fancy dress party in aid of the Chestnut Tree House Children’s Hospice recently. With help from Barclays Bank the group raised more than £1,300. Organiser Hazel Kernott said, “Many thanks to all that helped support the event. Nurses, vets, firemen and soldiers were some of the costumes for the theme of when I grow up, I want to be and some revellers even wanted to return to being school kids and a baby.”
The large group of friends hold regular fancy dress parties at venues in Eastbourne and over the years have raised thousands of pounds for local charities which is also matched pound for pound by Barclays Bank.
