Worthing Kids and Dapper Snapper were selected as one of three charities to have a box at ASDA in Ferring, with customers invited to put green tokens in their favourite charity’s box.

The charity received the most tokens and a cheque for £200 was presented to them at its World Cup fun day event at Palatine Park, Worthing, on Friday, May 30. Events co-ordinator Lydia Wilson said: “It was very gratefully received as our charity costs hundreds of pounds a month to run.
