It’s becoming something of a tradition for the Walled Garden boarding students to prepare red roses and sell them ahead of Valentine’s Day, raising money for charity in the process. This term, their chosen charity is Help for Heroes.
The students cut and trimmed the roses down to size, wrapped them up nicely and hand-wrote out any cards, complete with any particular messages.
This year, as Valentine’s Day falls during half term, the students had an epic task of hand delivering all of their roses on the final day of the first half of term.
As with last year, we followed some of the students around as they gave out roses around the Seaford College campus! It was a perfect day for it, and they did an excellent job delivering them around campus, which you can see in our video below.
Walled Garden has an exciting summer coming up, with some fantastic fundraising activities including a cycle from Seaford to Ypres in Belgium, over the May Bank Holiday weekend, ending at Menin Gate where Seaford’s founders son is commemorated.
Students will also be undertaking a walking challenge in the first week of the summer holidays, 10 summits in 10 hours in the Lake District, again raising money for Help for Heroes.
