Pupils presented a cheque for an elephantine £27,000 to the Flames of Hope project on Friday 22 September.  Children gathered on stage in the Brambletye theatre, dressed in costumes to represent the various ways in which they had raised money for the charity to present the cheque to Lucinda Bolton Carter, Chair of the Vanessa Grant Trust UK Board of trustees. Hercules, boxing gloves, bag pipes, roller skates, a cake, a steering wheel were just some of the weird and wonderful props brought on stage by the children.

This academic year, children have voted to support Demelza Hospice Care for Children which provides care and support for seriously ill children, young people and their families across East Sussex, Kent and South .
