FOBP raises £7,000 for Beachy Head Chaplaincy
Samantha Williams, FOBP Chair

This has been another very successful year, with the Friends of Bede’s Prep (FOBP) being proactively involved with the school community in numerous ways.

We have continued to support both the school community and our charity for the year, the Beachy Head Chaplaincy. We were delighted to present a cheque for £7,000 last term (by post) which has been gratefully received, and enabled the charity to double up their busy shifts in order to support those affected by Covid -19.

The Beachy Head Chaplaincy commented, “We are delighted and privileged to receive a donation of £7,000 from the friends of Bede’s Prep. This will provide funding for 51 interventions at Beachy Head by our chaplaincy team. Thank you all for your vital help supporting us.”

We were also able to donate £200 to the Eastbourne Food Bank over Half Term, allowing those struggling during these uncertain times to get the support they need. We couldn’t have achieved this without the support of the school community and so a huge thank you from us all.

We are looking for new volunteers; there is a variety of roles available and a place for everyone. No matter how many hours you can spare, it would be amazing if you could join us. Please email me at for more information and to register your interest.
