BUSY TWO MONTHS FOR SEAHAVEN BRANCH OF THE ROYAL SOCIETY OF ST GEORGE
July 6 2016.
The Seahaven Branch of The Royal Society of St. George has been busy for the past two months giving useful gifts to various local worthwhile charities or projects.
The first in May was to give a new computer to the Starfish Project, an East Sussex based non-profit making organisation that helps recovering stammerers and holds its three day courses at a hotel just north of Eastbourne.
Next up was at Denton, to give the village rosettes and badges to use at the sports day and fete.
Last year’s Mayor of Telscombe, Wayne Botting, is creating a garden of remembrance and the branch contribution was an oak bench.
Lastly, members of the branch attended the Seaford Museum in Martello Tower number 74 on the sea front and donated a projector which will help with presentations to visitors.
These four gifts were made using surplus money accumulated at the monthly lunches and dinners throughout the year. These gifts came on top of the effort as a partner in the joint committee that runs the successful Seahaven Veterans and Armed Forces Day. The branch arranged for a visit to the event by the Charitable Trust of The Royal Society of St. George from London to present £500 to the Newhaven Sea Cadet unit to help with the refurbishment of its field gun.
