Eastbourne pier was home to a spectacular 24hr fund raising event over last weekend (12/13th Nov) which included an unlikely mix of hair styling, exotic dancing and angling  

The event, hosted in the prestigious Ocean Suite at the end of Eastbourne pier featured celebrity hairdresser Jal Clarke who held a 24hr hair styling marathon with entertainment supplied throughout the event by actor/singer Leigh Baker, producer/singer Dar-ra, teenage crooner Tom Fitzpatrick and local dance group Street Styles 4 All.

Meanwhile hardy souls Arran Aghili and Karl Gatward did a 24hr sponsored fish from the end of the pier. Additional fish donated by Azim Noormohammed, who had obtained sponsorship to catch 40 Sea Bass, was added to the catch and auctioned by local personality ‘Hedgehog’. The entire event collected over £1300 towards the Eastbourne New Lifeboat Appeal’s target of £700,000. RNLI Eastbourne thanks all who contributed to the success of the event and for the town’s continued support.
