The Rye Sue Ryder Shop raised £827 with an open garden event last Saturday.

It took place at Rae Festing’s garden at 11 High Street.

There was a variety of stalls and people were entertained By Holly Fraser, Splitz dance academy, Step up and Dance and the Rye Ukulele Experiment.

Shop manager Denise Ellis said: “It is an incredible amount. We would like to say a big thank you to everybody who helped behind the scenes and entertained our visitors.

“The money raised will help towards giving incredible hospice and neurological care.”

The Sue Ryder charity provides hospice and neurological care for people facing a frightening, life-changing diagnosis.
