THE Midsummer Pool Party at the Pells in Lewes, featuring Tongue and Groove and bands from Starfish youth music project, raised more than £2,700 this year.
Dynamic T&G frontman Phil Rhodes handed over a suitably star-spangled cheque to Pells Pool manager Phil Ransley on Thursday.
Waterloo Bonfire Society members were also on hand to witness the handover, having run the bar at the party and provided the spectacular firework backdrop at the poolside for the climax to the evening which saw Phil Rhodes sail across the pool dressed as Neptune.
Phil Ransley said: “A big thank you goes to Tongue and Groove, Starfish, Waterloo and all of those involved who freely gave their time and resources to the event.
“The Pool Party is a real highlight of the year for us at the Pells. Every penny of the funds we receive will go towards improving the facilities here at the pool – so we can continue to be a great local resource for people in Lewes for many years to come.”
The funds raised by the event support both the Pells Pool and Starfish, which provides support to help young people in Lewes develop their musical talent.
