MORE than 40 students, parents and staff from Seaford College put their best feet forward in a six-mile fancy dress sponsored walk for the charity Alzheimers UK.

The walk from the college to Cowdray Park, was the idea of the college’s recently-appointed housemaster Matthew Pitteway who hopes to organise at least one major fund-raiser in the new boys’ boarding house – ‘Walled Garden West’ – each term.

Head of House Alex Dane suggested Alzheimers UK, as his grandfather suffers from the disease and he has seen first-hand the work of the charity.

So far the walk has raised nearly £1,000.
