PUPILS at St Bede’s Prep School recently raised more than £1,500 in aid of Eastbourne’s lifeboats.

Funds were raised throughout the year at the school by both the children and the Friends of St Bede’s through various fund raising events and collections.

The donation was presented to Eastbourne RNLI officials for their new lifeboat Diamond Jubilee, which featured in the Queen’s Pageant along the Thames, captained by Mark Sawyer.
