Supporting a very good cause

EASTBOURNE AM Rotary Club has donated £350 to The Elizabeth Foundation – a charity helping preschool deaf children and babies learn to listen and talk.

Members chose to support the organisation – based in Hampshire – because it supports families locally in Sussex.

One of the mothers who receives help is Sophie Partington, who is pictured receiving the cheque from AM member Stephen Lloyd MP.

Mr Lloyd said, “When I realised that the club was looking for ways to support this very worthwhile charity, I offered to hold a quiz night.

“It’s an issue very close to my heart, for obvious reasons, so we had a great fun evening.

“My house was packed with Rotarians and - not for a change - LibDems.”
