One Love receives Worthing Community Chest Cheque!

Last Sunday I put on my Worthing Community Chest t-shirt instead of my England top, and headed over to Luke Angel’s One Love Worthing event. Greeted by the Celebration Samba band, entertained throughout with great music and kept sustained by fabulous food from around the world, this could hardly have been a better first event for me!

One Love is a free, annual multicultural festival, bringing communities together to celebrate diversity. Worthing Community Chest were delighted to be able to support this year’s event and I was personally delighted that my first big cheque presentation was able to happen there.
