Iris Randall (from Year 7) had the exciting opportunity to attend the launch of Dementia Support in Chichester. Iris was invited to attend the royal opening with Her Royal Highness, the Countess of Wessex because of her volunteering work.
Her mum, Becca proudly said: “she is a volunteer and also successfully named part of the hub (“Forget Me Not Lane”) and as a result was asked to attend the royal opening of Sage House, and give the HRH Countess of Wessex a present. She did a wonderful job and also made endless cups of tea for people with dementia and ran tours of the Dementia Hub to people including county councilors, nurses, High Sheriff etc. She even received a hug from her Royal Highness!”
John Green added: “It was a very proud and most deserving experience for Iris. Community work is very much part of the ethos at Seaford and it’s good to see students giving time to important causes”.
Lesley-Anne Lloyd from Sage House said: “Iris Randall is a very special young lady with a very mature understanding of dementia and a real interest in supporting those living with the disease & their families. We are very proud of how Iris is already involved with our very special House. Having Iris as a youth ambassador is invaluable to us.”
