Charity auction at The Green Man in Ringmer raises thousands


A charity auction at The Green Man in Ringmer proved a roaring success.

It raised more than £6,500 for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust and was held in support of local man Kevin Miller.

Dustcart driver Kevin, whose brother died of the life-threatening inherited disease, is taking on an awesome challenge to raise money for the charity.

He is going to the Lake District to scale 24 peaks in 24 hours. You can donate by going to

Some 50 tempting lots came under the hammer at the pub and Kevin, 46, has said a massive thank you to all those involved.

A football shirt signed by Chelsea captain John Terry was bought by The Green Man landlord Glenn Foord for £300.

He then generously gave it back to the girl who donated it, 11-year-old Emma Roberts, from Lewes, who suffers from cystic fibrosis.

Other items which went under the hammer included a one night stay for two at Newick Park, glider flights, facials and chocolate-making.

Meanwhile, Kevin has been getting in shape for the 24 peaks with three runs a week from his Ringmer home to Newhaven – starting at 3.30am and then going on to do a day’s work.
