The Mayor of Peacehaven, Cllr. Claude Cheta launched a campaign in November to bring the community together and support the Seahaven (SCDA) food bank. Claude was enthused by the Marcus Rushford ‘no child will go without’ appeal in October that he decided to appeal to the general public and residents of Peacehaven to support his campaign ‘no child will go without a Christmas gift’. The results have been amazing. With the help from volunteers, Peacehaven Town Council have collected around 183 parcels for children of all ages.

Dawn Paul co-ordinator, Penny Shimmin (CEO, SCDA), John Cornish, SCDA Board of Trustees Chair, Andy Millward (SCDA), Deborah Donovan PTC Civic Officer, Karen Bray Information Officer and Michael Ripley Senior Caretaker.

We would like to thank everyone who has contributed to this worthwhile cause.
