The charity was chosen by Adur & Worthing Business Awards 2021 for fundraising at this year’s ceremony, held at the Pavilion Theatre on November 12.

Guests on the night were invited to enter a draw to support Love Your Hospital and its work, improving hospital facilities and supporting projects that fall outside of core NHS funding.

The draw raised £3,350, which will go towards vital equipment and resources.
