Olympic torchbearer’s charity fundraiser on Saturday

OLYMPIC torchbearer Kate Steer will be at St Luke’s Church in Seaford on Saturday (August 18) to help raise funds for charity.

The Jevington Drive resident, who had the honour of carrying the torch through the streets of Eastbourne, is giving people the opportunity of seeing the torch up close and personal and having their photos taken with it.

She will be at the church in Walmer Road between 10am and midday and is asking people to bring their own cameras for the photos.

Kate, who has volunteered for years at Seaford Primary School, is hoping to gain as many donations as possible for the school’s link school in Nairobi, Kenya and for Seaford based charity WAVES.
