A Lewes businessman has raised almost £10,000 for Teenage Cancer Trust after organising a hugely successful race day.

Richard Soan, managing director of Richard Soan Roofing Services, has been a long-term supporter of the charity.

With the support of Brighton Racecourse, Richard helped to host a special race day called Fundraising Friday. The packed out event raised thousands through ticket sales, two auctions and a ‘horse no horse’ competition. Richard said: “It is great to support such a fantastic charity as the Teenage Cancer Trust and I would like to say a huge thank you to Brighton Racecourse, Hardings Catering and the roofing industry, contractors, suppliers and manufactures, without whom the day would not have been the great success that it was.”
