Fundraiser for hospice

An amateur photographer has helped raise more than £1,500 for St Wilfrid’s Hospice.

Dan Dunbar raised a total of £1,520 through the sale of his popular Polegate and Village calendar. This is the third year running that Dan has organised the photography competition. He asks for local people to enter photographs of their favourite local sites, which he reproduces into a calendar sponsored by local businesses.

He said, “Polegate and local residents have been very supportive in making the calendar a continuing success for a third year. I would like to thank everyone involved for their support especially those who have purchased a calendar. I would like to extend my thanks to the sponsors for making it possible to produce the calendars and also to those who have been selling the calendars in local shops” He also said he would like local people to start thinking about images for the 2014 calendar.

Chris Clark, events administrator at St Wilfrid’s said, “We are extremely grateful for Dan’s continued support and for all his hard work in producing this calendar. The support of our local community is particularly important to us in 2013 with our new hospice nearing completion and the celebrations for our 30th birthday. Our thanks go to Dan and everyone who has supported him by either buying or selling this year’s calendar”
