A Bishopstone resident who has raised £32,000 for charity by opening his garden to the public has been nominated for an award.

Geoff Stonebanks, of Marine Drive, has been shortlisted in the final four of the fundraising category for the BBC Community Heroes Awards 2013 and will find out on December 11 if he has come up trumps. Geoff said this would not have been possible without the invaluable support of so many friends. He is pictured on the far right.
