A charity murder mystery evening held at the Hilton Brighton Metropole on raised almost 7,000 for crime fighting charity Sussex Crimestoppers. Chief Constable Martin Richards also presented a cheque for 2,000, part of the proceeds from the auction of the Mini Cooper car which was used in the Too Much Bling campaign, to Sussex Crimestoppers.
The murder mystery evening used the expertise of its co-patrons, Dame Vera Lynn and best-selling crime novelist Peter James, to give it a special twist.
Peter James explains: We had a dead good evening with a murder mystery for our guests to solve. It was centred on a cold case that Superintendent Roy Grace, the top detective from my novels, had been assigned.
The murder took place during World War Two so my co-patron Dame Vera Lynn used her experience to make sure it felt authentic.
Many of the guests got into the spirit by dressing in 1930/40s style too it has been a memorable night and helped raise a fantastic amount of money to support SussexCrimestoppers important work.
