AWARD-winning charity fundraiser Jeannette Jones has passed the £20,000 mark for the Sussex MS Treatment Centre.

Jeannette, who suffers from multiple sclerosis, organises various events under the Most Spectacular banner to help the centre, in Croft Avenue, Southwick.

Her most recent event, the two-day Christmas fayre at the end of November, featured more than 20 stalls, cakes, tombola and a raffle.

She said the fayre raised £2,055 on the day and with further monies due, the grand total was expected to reach £2,500.

“Which I have just realised makes my fundraising efforts total over £20,000 for the centre, hurrah!” she added.

“Worthing town crier Bob Smytherman ‘oh yead’ his way around Southwick on the Sunday morning and MP Tim Loughton ate his way through opening the event on the Saturday.

“Coffee ran out, bread ran out, cakes ran out, mulled wine too, but the enthusiasm did not.”

Jeannette will now be ‘having a rest’ until the next Most Spectacular event, a pamper day in March.

She has previously won a Herald & Gazette Community Stars award, and others, for her efforts.
