EASTBOURNE Mencap would like to say a very big thank you to all the Waitrose customers who generously donated to a collection outside the store in Old Town on Friday May 25-26.

In total the sum of £875.55 was raised which the charity described as a magnificent achievement.

A spokeswoman said, “Mr and Mrs Ibbotson, our collectors, also wish to give a special thank you to Waitrose staff who were so kind and helpful throughout the two days.

“The monies collected will go to the Friends of the Group Homes who collect throughout the year to ensure that each of our residents have birthday and Christmas presents, especially those who do not have any immediate family.”
