Heathfield car firm hands car keys handed over to lucky winner

JACK HAMPTON from The Heathfield Partnership and Heathfield Rotary Club presented the keys of a Vauxhall Agila car to Therasita Caldwell of Bodle Street Green last week.

Therasita drew the winning ticket in a raffle to win the vehicle. The raffle was one of several fund-raising initiatives organised by the Partnership and Rotary in support of Heathfield’s proposed indoor swimming pool.

A year-round series of events and promotions raised £13,000, grants of £3,000 from NatWest and £4,000 from the Co-op which resulted in an overall profit of £12,000 once the vehicle had been purchased.

The money will go towards planning, design and ultimately building the pool which will be sited on land at Heathfield Community College
