Storrington Village Day Committee awarded money to worthy non-profit organisations last week after raising more than £3,000 this year.

The committee along with parish council members and sports car club SADCASE, hosted a ceremony at the Parminter Scout Hall to present the cheques.

Charities at the ceremony included SPLASH youth club, which received £1,200 to help towards running costs.

Another cheque for £450 was given to the Storrington Air Training Corps to fund equipment for their new training room.

New camping gear will be purchased for the First Storrington & Sullington Scout Group with the £410 they were awarded on the day.

Storrington Village Day committee Chairman, Tony Vaughan, thanked the leaders and members of the recipient organisations for the time and effort that they give to providing help, activities and opportunities for young people in the area.

He said: “Using the surplus from the Village Day event in this way, means that money raised at a very popular local event goes straight back into supporting our young people in Storrington.”

The Storrington Village Day event collected an impressive £3,250 and is held every summer in Storrington Recreation Ground.

Cheques were presented by representatives from Storrington Rotary Club, Storrington 41 Club and Chanctonbury Lions which make up the Village Day committee.
