WORTHING Lions Club’s Christmas Appeal has raised £5,509.89 for local causes.
The charity held a number of street collections across Worthing in the run-up to Christmas.
Marian Down, PR officer for Worthing Lions, said: “We would like to thank everybody who gave so generously to our Christmas Appeal. We raised an amazing sum which will be put to good use for local causes in 2014.
“This winter was the wettest for years and we are very grateful to the people who braved the elements.
“We would also like to thank Steve Patterson of Camelot Guest House who is our lovely Santa on our street collections.”
She added that Steve made sure no child was left out.
