An annual Soup and Pud lunch raised more than £400 for thee Hailsham Old Pavilion Society.

Held on February 16 at the Charles Hunt Centre in Hailsham, this event has gained in popularity over the years and was once again a complete sell out.

People were queuing as the doors opened to ensure they did not miss out.

The HOPS committee served up a variety of delicious homemade soups and fresh bread followed by some spectacular and tasty puddings.

Everyone enjoyed the food being provided and there were plenty of people taking up the opportunity for seconds.

The money raised will go to the upkeep of the Hailsham Old Pavilion.

There are some large works required soon, including the redecoration of the front of the building to ensure it is kept looking prime.

Tom Chapman, on behalf of HOPS, thanked committee members and volunteer helpers who gave up their Saturday morning to help at the event and the others who prepared some of the soups and puds.

“A substantial amount of work goes into making this event a success and our army of volunteer helpers always come up trumps,” he said.

“We really appreciate what they all do to support HOPS.”
