An Olympic champion was the guest of honour at a charity’s fundraising tea party.

Robin Cousins, winner of figure skating Olympic gold in 1980, met more than 130 guests at the Starr Trust Tea Party at the Brighton Hilton Metropole on August 6.

Mr Cousins is patron of the Starr Trust – a Brighton-based charity that champions young people and helps them achieve their goals.

Many guests at the event came from care homes across Sussex – including celebrity war veteran Bernard Jordan, who absconded on D-Day to take a trip to Normandy.

The Starr Trust supports young people aged ten to 18 to help them fulfil their potential in sports, arts and education.
