Since May, Deans Place Hotel in Alfriston has asked guests to donate £2 as part of the South Downs National Park Trust's '˜Visit, Give, Protect' pilot.

They found that guests are happy to support the park and have raised £1,394 for the new charity.

James Dopson, from Deans Place Hotel, said: '˜We know our visitors care about the park's special landscapes and we're proud to show them that we do too. With just a £2 voluntary donation from each booking we can help to make a lasting difference to the environment, wildlife and communities of the South Downs.'
