A grateful thanks for charity support

Please may I express my thanks and gratitude to the many people and children who supported The Rowland Gibson Charity Swim in support of the mayor’s charity (The Worthing and Adur Fund) at The Aquarena, so excellently covered in the centre spread of The Worthing Herald, March 28 issue.

My thanks go to all the staff at The Aquarena for their help before and on the night. Also to the volunteers, which included members of the Worthing Youth Council.

Also, I would like to extend my thanks to all those who attended my charity fund-raising dinner at The Ardington Hotel on March 27, which included the mayor and mayoress of Haywards Heath, the vice-chairman of Arun District Council and his wife. We listened to a fascinating talk by Andrew Brown, who rowed across the Atlantic single-handed in record time.

My thanks must also go to Simon Margaroli and all his staff at The Ardington Hotel, who looked after us so well.

Charles James

Mayor of Worthing
