Bede’s pupils enjoy friendship, fundraising and a sunny seaside stroll

September 22, 2016

Scintillating sun, lush rolling hills and an azure, halcyon sea; the girls of Charleston House at Bede’s enjoyed all this and more on their sponsored walk across the Beachy Head cliffs recently.

Housemistress Michelle Martin explained ‘The walk was organised to kick our charity fundraising agenda off for the year, with our overall aim being to raise money for our House Charity, St Wilfred’s Hospice in Eastbourne.   

“This charity uses donations to fund a comfortable and friendly environment for the terminally ill, and we in Charleston House feel a strong urge to support this cause and help this incredible organisation to fulfil its benevolent purpose’.

The pupils walked across the hills from Beachy Head to the Birling Gap, utilizing the opportunity to chat and become more familiar with the new students within the House, before returning to Bede’s School in Upper Dicker for afternoon tea with their families.
