GENEROUS members of one of Hastings’ oldest clubs dug deep to raise hundreds of pounds for charity this week.

The Winkle Club held its annual dinner at the East Hastings Angling Association on Monday night and there was a strong turnout for the annual fundraiser.

After the meal, the club’s president and former MP for Hastings,, Sir Kenneth Warren gave a speech relating some anecdotes about his life in politics, the Iceni Belly dancers strutted their stuff on stage and local comedian Adger Brown performed a short set and conducted the auction.

And along with the raffle, members raised £1,500 which will all be distributed to good causes here in 1066 Country.
