A food bank was singing the praises of Seaford Choral Society after it donated £300.

Seahaven Storehouse provides basic food items to people in need in the Seaford area.

The choir raised the money at its retiring collection at the Spring Concert it staged at St Leonard’s Church in Seaford on Saturday, May 10.

Mary Mercer, from Seaford Choral Society, said: “The retiring collections from our concerts are always donated to a local charity and our chosen charity to benefit from this concert was Seahaven Storehouse, a Seaford organisation who provide basic food items to individuals and families in need within the Seahaven area.

“We were delighted to be able to hand over to the Storehouse a cheque for £311.14.”

Seahaven Storehouse was set up in 2013 by Dawn Woodgate at the Community Church in Vale Road and opens on Thursday mornings from 10am to 1pm.

Those who have been referred, usually by government or other agencies, enjoy a cup of coffee and a chat while waiting for their food parcels to be made up.

The cheque was presented by the chairman of Seaford Choral Society, Mike Rogers, to Dawn and Barry of Seahaven Storehouse. The Mayor of Seaford Mark Brown chose the Storehouse as one of the charities he is supporting throughout his mayoral year.
