The Academy, Selsey, Summer Fair in support of Selsey Lifeboats raised the magnificent sum of £396.08 recently. Heavy rain meant all activities were relocated into the Academy hall. The innovation and imagination of students in finding ways to raise money from parents, fellow students and staff had to be seen to be believed. Mocktails, memory tests, music, lucky dips, cakes and cookies raffles were all there. Some brave staff and students gamely stood in the rain while others paid to drench them with water filled balloons. The bravest staff member of all, Miss Sowerby, "volunteered" to have a number of tins of beans poured over her head – the photo says it all!
A huge thank you to all the students and staff for their ongoing support.
