Bloomin' good fundraiser

The Posy Bowl has been doing blooming well for a local charity.

Kevin Loveland, proprietor of the Hailsham florist, has raised £3,000 following two evening events of festive fun with flowers at the Hailsham Pavilion.

The two shows, held before Christmas, were sell-outs.

Kevin will be donating the money to the Jeremy Cole Memorial fund in conjunction with CRY – Cardiac Risk in the Young.

The fund was set up by his parents following the sad loss of Jeremy, who died at the age of 14. Jenny and Nigel Cole have been fundraising ever since to help raise awareness of cardiac problems in the young.

Seventy-five per cent of the money will be going towards buying a new ECG machine for the medical assessment unit at the DGH and 25 per cent will go to CRY.
