COMMITTED fundraisers from Bognor Regis who raised £100,000 for charity have stepped down.

The devoted committee 
for Macmillan Cancer Support brought in the money in just 14 years.

But its members, chaired by Sue Bond, have decided to end their activities.

Steph Georgalakis, Macmillan’s fundraising manager, said she was sad the committee had ended.

“The committee’s commitment to Macmillan Cancer Support has been truly amazing.

“I have enjoyed working alongside Sue and will 
miss her and her hard-working team.”

Sue Lancaster, a committee member, paid tribute to 
Sue Bond.

She said: “She is an amazing woman who puts others before herself.

“Her kind heart and generous nature are just two of the many lovely qualities she possesses. Nothing is ever too much trouble and she is someone who really cares about people.

“Over the years, her commitment to Macmillan has been tireless and we are all so very lucky that we were part of the team.

“We have some great memories and will never forget our time on the Bognor committee.

“Raising money for this incredible charity has been an absolute pleasure and made all the more enjoyable for having Sue as our chairman – the end of an era, but what an era.”

The committee’s large number of activities since its formation in 1999 included golf days and taking part in Bognor’s carnival.

They also pointed people to Macmillan’s network of services.

Macmillan is looking to find new volunteers to keep its presence in Bognor and Littlehampton. Contact 0300 1000 200 or visit:
