Year 10 Students from Frewen College at Northiam ran a successful charity coffee morning raising £680 to be split jointly between Demelza Hospice Care for Children and Macmillan Cancer Support.
Lesley Hayden, Head of Food and Nutrition at Frewen College said: “The children who are aged around 14, ran the coffee morning entirely by themselves including baking a wide variety of cakes in lessons, serving at the event, running a raffle and even washing up.
“They have raised a huge amount of money and we are really proud of them.”
The day was eagerly awaited and well supported with visits by Frewen’s School Governors, students, family, teachers as well as the wider community.
