SPINNING plates, steel drums “echoing across the sandcourts” and street dancing helped make a charity day on Worthing seafront a success.
More than 500 people turned up to the event on the Beach House grounds, in Worthing, to help raise money for 11-year-old Worthing boy, Ollie Pink, who has congenital muscular dystrophy.
The day was held last weekend, on May 19, and was arranged by Anthony Dickenson, owner of Feast Sandwich shop, on the corner of Warwick Street.
The event raised £3,000 towards a new wheelchair for Ollie, because his old one is too small.
Anthony said: “I have recently met the Pink family who also live in Worthing. When I met them I felt compelled to help them and Ollie. So, I organised a family charity day, which was held last weekend.
“Fortunately it was a sunny day, lots of people came and we not only raised £3000, but we also raised his profile in the town.”
Anthony said plans are afoot to have more events in the future, to get a wheelchair for Ollie as soon as possible.
