Massive Collection at Newhaven helps save charity

Trevor Weeks, founder of East Sussex Wildlife Rescue and Ambulance Service (WRAS) was delighted after a massive £589.11 was raised at a collection held at Sainsbury’s at Newhaven.

"This is much better that any other store we have visited and has really made a difference towards keeping our service on the road" said Trevor, "the people of Newhaven and Seaford have always been very generous towards our charity."

The WRAS volunteers spent 10 hours at the store collecting money in order to help the charity which has recently been suffering from financial hardship. This money will help prevent the organisation from closing along with money raised from local media appeals.

Sue Wilkinson chairperson of East Sussex WRAS said "I would like to thank the people of Newhaven and the surrounding areas who very generously stopped and donated money."
