On Monday, House Prefects from Seaford College presented a cheque for £560 to St Barnabas Hospice in Worthing.
The Prefects were given a tour of the facilities at St Barnabas which can provide hospice care for up to 40 adults at a time in the West Sussex area. It costs over £6 million a year to run the Hospice which has provided palliative care to over 30,000 patients since it opened in 1973.
St Barnabas was Walled Garden West Boarding House’s “Charity of the Term” before Christmas, and the money was raised through a number of fundraising activities including a fancy dress walk and a Reindeer run.
Headmaster John Green commented: “We are delighted to make this contribution to St Barnabas. Our Prefects were honoured to make the presentation and see the invaluable work the Hospice does in the West Sussex area”.
