A small but dedicated band of Chichester College students and staff defied the rain on Tuesday (27 November) to help ‘drum out abuse’.
It was a 50th birthday celebration with a difference.
Instead of receiving gifts, Andrew Green decided to give back – in spectacular fashion, raising around £28,000 for a West Sussex-based children’s charity.
Local horticulture students will soon be transforming a plot of land at St Richards' Hospital in Chichester to create a haven for cancer patients.
Chichester MP Gillian Keegan tried her hand at bricklaying at Chichester College on Friday (19 October).
She was visiting the campus during Colleges Week, part of the ‘Love Our Colleges’ national campaign that celebrates the positive impact of colleges on their local communities.
Gillian took a look around the dedicated construction unit, meeting bricklaying students and even having a go herself, as she helped to build a pier training model after some guidance from lecturer Neil Redman and second year student Jake Hinkins.
