“We have had an amazing first year, smashing the targets we set ourselves at the outset and what better way to mark this first milestone than raising some money for a great local cause.”

Vantage Professional Risks started trading in June 2012, and specialises in insuring professionals and professional service companies.

It already boasts some of the most successful professional firms locally as clients.

Mr Swann said: “At Vantage Professional Risks, we put the client’s needs first.

“We ensure that we always focus on what their needs are, what their exposures are, and ensure that we provide them with the right cover at the right price.”

The night was attended by Worthing mayor Bob Smytherman.
