Sue Allen, charity administrator, said: “As always, the event will offer fantastic entertainment, including singers Joe Butt, Alex Mead and Tim Evernden, Sussex Tornados, the Sussex Army Cadet Force KitKar Challenge, a tug of war competition, Zorball, welly throwing, character walkabouts, a baby competition, a dog show, craft stalls, a bouncy castle, Guile’s Reptiles and much more.

“Refreshments will be provided by Rapid Relief Team, The Hungry Horsebox, The Real Coffee Man, Surrey Ices and Sam Ford Hotdogs.

“Please come along on the day and help raise funds to allow us to continue to accept all of the Wish Box applications we receive for children and young people with cancer.

“Income for Jamie’s Wish has suffered over the last year as requests for personally-tailored Wish Boxes have risen greatly.

“Last year’s income from fundraising and grants was down by 50 per cent, as it has become harder for all small charities to raise funds in the current economic climate.”

Raffle tickets can be bought in advance from the Jamie’s Wish office at the Trades and Labour Club, Wick Street, Littlehampton, on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Anyone able to help by selling some is asked to email info@jamieswish.co.uk or telephone 01903 368524.
