Hurst College get top marks for charity help
Pupils from Hurst College gave their time to tidy the garden, patios and surrounding grounds at Bevern View in Barcombe. Not only did Hurst College pupils make the home look fantastic in the glorious sunshine, but the pupils also got to meet the residents and carers at Bevern View and understand how the Trust helps people with profound disabilities.
Hurst Community Action Day Success
The whole of the Hurstpierpoint College Senior School spent a day in the local community across Sussex to help a number of charities and schools for their 2015 Community Action Day. The community work included helping at Chailey Heritage School, whilst others visited the Bevern Trust in here in Barcombe. All the pupils and their teacher got to work clearing the patio area at Bevern View, whilst another team of pupils tidied the front of the home and cleared the planting areas and pots from weeds and old plants. Despite the very warm weather everyone had a great time and really made Bevern View look fantastic in the sunshine. Plenty of shade and ice lollies were on hand to refresh the Hurst pupils and we look forward to welcoming them back again next year.
A huge thank you to all the pupils and their teacher who made such a wonderful difference to the grounds of Bevern View.
Hurst pupils lead by example
We would welcome other teams from colleges and the University in Sussex to spend time at Bevern View in Barcombe. It is a great way of team building, giving something back to the community and understanding more about disability. The Bevern Trust is a registered charity and must raise £5000 each month to provide care, love, freedom and opportunity to people with complex needs. We need more regular volunteers to help people with profound disabilities get more from life. If you would like more information on volunteering, please email email@example.com or call 01273 400752.
