Roy Payton presented a cheque for £900 to the Children With Cancer Fund in Polegate after a sponsored skate along Eastbourne seafront. The 78-year-old, known as ‘Roller Roy’ also raised a staggering £1,937 for Chestnut Tree House in memory of his daughter. Deborah, who died aged one.
Roy will now start raising funds for another children’s charity –Starlight – which grants the wishes of terminally ill children. Roy will be doing another sponsored skate on Sunday, May 10 at 11am, starting at the RNLI Museum. To donate, visit www.justgiving.com/Roy-Payton.
