Hailsham Old Pavilion Society held its AGM, where June Bourne, HOPS president, presented a cheque for £17,000 to Bob Macey, chairman of the Hailsham Pavilion Board.
A spokesman for HOPS said: “It was well attended and the Chairman and Treasurer reported on an excellent year of fund raising.
“HOPS runs various events throughout the year to raise funds to support the Hailsham Old Pavilion and receives membership subscriptions from it’s members.
“The Pavilion is reliant on this fund raising in order to continue to operate as a cinema and live arts theatre.
“There has never been a better time to become a member of HOPS.”
Members receive a 10 per cent discount on their cinema tickets.
Annual membership is £10, or £15 for a joint membership.
