STUDENTS have been made a difference in their community by raising £1,800 for a local hospital.

Staff, pupils and teachers at Seaford College spent last term raising the money for Petworth Cottage Hospital and last week Headmaster John Green and teacher Bill Cuthbertson handed Chris Hubbard, the hospital’s chairman of trustees, a cheque for £1,800.

Mr Hubbard expressed his gratitude to the team at Seaford: “Thank you immensely, this is wonderful.

“It really puts the cream on the cake for residents at the Petworth Cottage Hospital.”

The money was raised at two hugely successful Burns Nights in January, which were organised by Bill and Alana Cuthbertson.

Former Scottish Rugby International and Seaford rugby coach Bill said college staff were ‘delighted’ to be able to help the hospital.

“We are very fortunate at Seaford to be able to support local charities” he said.

“The hospital does outstanding work and we are delighted to help them.”

Headmaster John Green said he was passionate about his school making a difference in the community: “Our students are extremely fortunate to study and live in such a beautiful part of the country - it is only right they give something back.

“I would like to thank the parents and Bill and Alana Cuthbertson who continue to organise the events so incredibly well.”
