A PETWORTH trio have set up a new charity – and they want to put the money they raise towards a defibrillator in the town.

Martin Dallyn died unexpectedly on March 8, aged only 58.

Now his niece Samantha Harding and friends Mandy Lucking and Jules Arlette have set up the Martin Dallyn Community Trust in his memory.

“He was a Petworth man, much loved and was always helping everyone,” said Mandy.

“We decided his name should live on, helping people. The first thing we wanted to raise funds for were defibrillators. The Nutbourne 9K have pledged to give all funds raised at their event to our charity.

“We would be interested in giving all the funds raised to the defibrillator in Petworth.”

Martin was part of the team at The Badgers pub that hosts fundraising events so this will become the base for the charity. With a website and Facebook page on the way, the group aims to raise funds for worthy projects and causes in the community.

Petworth town councillor Tony Sneller praised the trio and said their offer was ‘marvellous news’.
