The Bede's Community Links project, founded in 2010, involves 40 pupil volunteers who volunteer their time to help local individuals, organisations and institutions throughout Sussex and beyond.
Alongside their continued work at Park Mead primary school, Hailsham Community College and Ratton School, the pupils have this year delivered short courses at Woodlands Federation primary schools and engaged in charitable work at Eastbourne District General Hospital.
With the invaluable input of Bede's teachers, pupils have continued to invite groups of older people to the school from locales including Upper Dicker, Hailsham and Seaford for computer lessons, to have tea, play games and take part in tours of our increasingly beautiful campus.
Aside from this the pupils have visited a number of nursing homes, including Alfriston Court, to offer their company to residents, and we also work with Chailey Heritage, an organisation which specialises in helping physically handicapped children.
It takes a special kind of pupil to do the kinds of things our pupils are doing. Luckily, we have many, many special pupils at Bede's who are keen to volunteer their time for good causes.
