Care for Veterans, West Sussex Mind and NSPCC each received a cheque for £4,500, which Cllr Thorpe presented during a coffee and cake morning she held in her garden at home.
The former Mayor’s fundraising initiatives included a singalong version of the movie, Bohemian Rhapsody, quiz nights and a special variety show held at the Worthing Assembly Hall.
Cllr Thorpe explained, “Being the Mayor of Worthing was an amazing role as I got to hear wonderful stories about people, and it provided a unique opportunity to support them. I chose Care for Veterans, Mind and NSPCC because they work very hard in our community to help countless people. I am so pleased I have been able to support them in this way and thank everyone who helped me to raise such a fantastic amount.”< Back to News
