A casino night raised £145 for the Prader-Willi Syndrome Association UK.

Little Common pub The Wheatsheaf held the event, which was attended by a host of revellers in James Bond themed costumes – including staff from New Directions, a local scheme which provides specialist support and care for people suffering from the over-eating condition.

A spokesman for New Directions thanked landlords Andy and Helen for putting together “an excellent evening”, adding: “The food for the evening was exquisite, and an extremely successful evening was had by all.”

New Directions plans to up its commitment to raise as much money for the Prader-Willi Syndrome Association UK in 2014 and is already planning a host of events.

The main fundraiser will be a 1066 Country walk which will take place over two days on the weekend of Saturday May 3. The first walk will be Pevensey to Battle and the second Battle to Rye – a total distance of 31 miles.
