David Jenkins, Chairman of Eastbourne Town Football Club said: “Everyone at Eastbourne Town is full of admiration for the work done by the NHS. We organised a collection at a recent match and decided to donate to the Pevensey Unit as they had provided fantastic care and support to a number of people special to the club. Grateful thanks to all our wonderful committee, supporters, sponsors and players who raised a staggering £1,100.”

Pevensey Ward Matron, Arturo Lazaro said: “We are very grateful to the Eastbourne Town Football Club for their generous donation which will be useful for improving the care and facilities for patients and their families as well as for staff.”
