ANDY HOTHER IS GETTING VERY WET FOR CHARITY
As part of a work team from Adur and Worthing Police we have entered in the Great Sussex Bath Tub Race on June 21 2015.
The GREAT Sussex Bath Race is a bath tub raft-racing tournament for teams from the business community. It is an adrenalin pumping, muscle straining and brain teasing four-person paddling competition with three rounds of heavily fought duels on a beautiful private lake near Chichester.
The funds raised will go to supporting two charities; the Life Centre and Chestnut Tree House.
The team have comitted to raise £1000 which will be split evenly between the two charities. If you would like to sponsor or make any dontations you can support us online by visiting
or if you would prefer to sponsor offline I have a hard copy which i will bring upto the Club, ask for the sheet from the bar staff, thank you.
Both of these charities offer vital and significant support to people at times when they are most needed and have in the past supported families from the rugby Club and we are pleased to be able to support them.
Please if you could donate any amount this would be great.
