Young Mayor presents charity cheques

Newhaven’s Young Mayor, Huey Cripps, presented cheques to two charities – the Bhopal Medical Appeal and the Seahaven Sea Cadets on Tuesday.

The Newhaven Pram Race, held on Easter Monday, was Huey’s idea and Huey was closely involved in the organisation of the event, which was jointly hosted by the town council and the chamber of commerce.  The money raised by the event was split between the two charities – £678.30 each – both of which were chosen by Huey.

The Bhopal Medical Appeal raises funds for two clinics looking after victims of a deadly gas leak in Bhopal, India.  For more information on the appeal visit their website
