MORE than £1,000 was raised for a charitable cause through the sale of fish and chips.

Whistler’s, which has branches in Hayling Island and Fareham, sold its meals for only £1.

The money to make up the rest of the food was instead donated to Mission for Sam.

The fundraiser generated £1,468.

As previously reported, Sam John, 16, of Albert Road, Fareham, has an inoperable brain tumour.

The family needed to raise at least £100,000 to pay for proton beam therapy in America.

It was unclear if the NHS would cover costs, so the family set up a fundraising drive.

The NHS have agreed to pay – the family is setting up a charitable trust for the money.
