Jake raises £250

Jake raises 250

During October half term, 10-year-old Jake raised over 250 for local charity, The Sara Lee Trust by cleaning 10km of beach between Pett Level and the Rye Nature Reserve.

During the beach clean marathon, which took 8-hours, Jake and his sister Ava found all sorts of peculiar items that had been left behind or washed up on the beach from 69 plastic forks to a pair of pants.

Jake raised funds for The Sara Lee Trust because he knows family members and friends who suffered from cancer and had experienced the care and support that the Trust offers. He wanted to give something back, and also help another cause close to his heart: I wanted to help others like my aunt and neighbour who had help from The Sara Lee Trust, and also to help save the birds on the beach. My target was 100 so I am very happy and thankful to everyone who helped me to raise so much money.

The Sara Lee Trust supports people affected by cancer and other life-threatening illnesses across Hastings and Rother; and their carers and families. Jakes mother, Sandie said, The thing that really stands out to me about The Sara Lee Trust is that they also help the family in what can be a really difficult time. I think that is unique and special.

Sanctuary days are a real pick me up day. The group therapy is great because it is an opportunity to meet others in a similar circumstance and how they are dealing with side effects, family life and life in general
