A sixth form student from St Mary’s School and College in Wrestwood Road achieved over £500 by doing a sponsored swim.

Nathaniel Wickens - known to all as Nat - got up early every morning over the recent half term and managed to swim 100 lengths at Rye leisure centre.

The money raised by Nat will go towards the refurbishment of the students’ common room at the school.

The student forum will meet to discuss the best way the funds can be spent, suggestions so far have been to repaint the room and to buy a compendium of games.
