The Residents’ Association of Chyngton Estate (RACE) announced this week it had folded.

Amongst its achievements were running a youth club and football team and campaigning for improvements to the park and communal gardens in the area.

But the group has donated its remaining funds of £1,500 to two Seaford charities: Making Magical Moments and Seaford Tree Wardens.

Making Magical Moments is a Seaford based dementia support project providing one to one support and group sessions for people with dementia, mental health issues or older people.

Wendy Morley from the charity said: “We have already used some of the funds to provide a day at the seaside for nine of our clients.

“We also plan to provide entertainers for ourweekly group sessions.”

For more information on this project contact Wendy on 07759370090.

Seaford Tree Wardens Group raises funds to plant and help maintain new trees.

They aim to use their money to plant more trees in the Chyngton area.

Jenny and Walter Tillyard said: “We like to work with the community to involve them in choosing a location and then planting and maintaining new trees.

The main job is to make sure that young trees are watered regularly” For more information visit the Seaford Tree Wardens website.
