The girls of Crossways House at Bede’s School recently participated in a charity zip wire. The youngsters were raising funds for Blind Veterans UK and the challenge took place above the charity’s 150 foot Ovingdean building.

Upper Sixth pupil Hailey Mills said, “There were many nervous faces as we all got kitted up, however there were no disappointed feelings by the time we left.

“ It was fortunately a delightfully sunny day, and the view from the top was breath-taking.

“This was a new experience for many of us, and it encouraged many of the girls and I to conquer our fears and broaden our horizons as to what we can achieve.”

Blind Veterans UK, formerly known as St Dunstan’s, provides support and care for ex-armed forces members who have lost their sight.
