Proto Restaurant Group owner Andy Sparsis was arrested on 7th March as a charity promotion for the ‘Love Your Hospitals‘ charity. On arrival at Durrington Police custody suite, his bail was set at £1000 and he was placed in the cells. His task, was to phone everybody he knew from local businessmen/women to suppliers, to ask them to donate money in order to raise the bail money required and allow him to be released.
Andy successfully raised his bail limit and more, raising over £2000 for the ‘Love Your Hospitals‘ charity and the new cardiac unit at our local Worthing Hospital. Proto owner Andy was not the only one to be arrested in similar fashion, and his bail money, combined with that of fellow cell mates Julian Church, Darren Crabb and Lee Noakes, over £6000 was raised for the charity, a fantastic effort all-round.
Everybody at Proto Restaurant Group’s restaurants – Food and The Fish Factory (Worthing & Littlehampton) – is extremely proud of Andy and all the continued work he is doing for the charity and we are very happy to be associated with such a worthwhile cause.
