Philip Aslett of Heyshott

20th October 2006

Friday 20th was Breast Cancer Awareness day and a number of people in the area made the effort not only to wear something pink [the official Charity colour] but to also raise funds for the 'Get in the Pink' campaign.
One of these brave souls was Mr. Philip Aslett of Heyshott, pictured left, who not only worked all day at Dexams in Holmbush dressed in 'pink drag' but then toured the town visiting commercial premises throughout Midhurst collecting cash for the charity.
His total at the end of the day was over £300 with approximately £100 of that being collected from Dexam staff.
His 'attire' was donated by friends and work colleagues, with the final touches and 'fiddly bits'..[I dread to think...!!]....assisted by his neighbour, Donna Dudman.
The best [or worst] part of the day was when after collecting a 'pledge', he received a proposal of marriage from a man on North Street.
Mr. Asletts mother suffered from cancer in the final years of her life and this prompted him to take on the challenge given to him by workmates.
He also expressed his thanks to the staff of William Hill, bookmakers, in Duck Lane, Midhurst who 'jumpstarted' the collections in the town.
