A GENEROUS Petworth trio is looking for ways to help others.

After a busy first year of fundraising, the team behind the Martin Dallyn Community Trust has raised more than £8,000 to be used for community defibrillators.

The first one is to be installed at Coldwaltham village hall in March and there will be two following shortly in Petworth.

The trio is now looking for a good cause to help.

Fundraiser Mandy Lucking said: “Going into a new year, we have lots of fundraising events and ideas planned for the 
year and we really want a new local cause to raise money for.”

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

His niece Samantha Harding and friends Mandy Lucking and Jules Arlette set up the Martin Dallyn Community Trust in his memory to fund community projects.
