Penny Smith teacher of childcare commented “All the students worked well together by planning, preparing and running the room to raise money for this worthy cause.

“We would like to thank everyone for their donations”

Other schools in the Hastings and Rother area were taking part in Children in Need events on Friday, including Silverdale School, in St Leonards, Mary Magdelene School, in Bexhill and Netherfield School, at Battle.

The theme for this year’s fund raiser was Do Your Own Thing and help change lives.

Money raised from the Children in Need appeal helps provide grants to projects in the UK which focus on children and young people who are disadvantaged.

This year’s BBC Children in Need raised a record total of £50.6m on the night of its televised appeal. Children in Need has now raised more than £1bn since its first major appeal in 1980.
