The Interact club at St. Richard’s Catholic College has been working hard with the local community. Members of the team as well as dancers and singers from the college were delighted to help at a Rotary Senior Citizens tea party at St Augustine’s Church Hall. The ‘Interacters’ welcomed guests, served drinks and food, and tidied up afterwards.
The singers and dancers performed a wide selection songs with old-time favourites such as ‘We’ll meet again’ and modern numbers including ‘Titanium’. The pupils all worked hard to make the tea party a success.
Peter Mitchell-Davis, St Richard’s Rotary Contact, commented: “Grateful thanks to all of the team...You are all a credit to yourselves, your college and the community.
Additionally, the Interact Club led the annual ‘Love in a box’ campaign which supports the Eastbourne based charity “The Mustard Seed Relief Mission”. This charity supplies humanitarian aid to refugees, orphans and displaced persons. Each form in every year group at St. Richard’s took up the challenge of bringing in gifts, wrapping shoeboxes in Christmas paper and collecting the money required for postage for each box. Many pupils and their families kindly made up and fully filled boxes individually themselves. A total of 362 boxes were collected and gratefully collected by the Eastbourne Charity last week.
