EASTBOURNE AM Rotary Club organised a charity breakfast on Friday morning at the Mansion Lions Hotel.
Around 70 people were present and the guest speaker was borough council leader David Tutt, who updated everyone on the exciting plans for Eastbourne.
He spoke about the £85 million Arndale Centre extension, the new restaurant planned on the Wish Tower site, and developments along Seaside up to Princes Park.
The breakfast was in aid of Breakaway – one of AM’s annual commitments when it funds a holiday for a group of young disabled people.
The holiday costs a total of £6,000 and this breakfast raised £502 because Mansion owner Sheikh Abid-Gulzar provided all the breakfast – food and drink – completely free of charge. There was also a raffle.
Fred Cox from AM said: “It was a great success and we were grateful to everyone who turned up from 7am. As ever, many, many thanks to Mr G for making it all possible. His generosity is endless and we appreciate it.’
