NatWest staff from offices and branches across Sussex joined together to donate the funds needed to make the trip possible and were giving a big helping hand from Peter Lea of Eastbourne Executive Travel in Pevensey - who provided the transport free of charge.

Commenting on the day, NatWest Private Banking Manager, Jennifer Homewood, who co-ordinated the fundraising and was one of those who made the trip said: "I'd like to say a big thank you to my colleagues around the county who donated so generously and who, along with Peter Lea from Eastbourne Executive Travel, made this trip possible. Barnardo's do a fantastic job and we are just pleased that we can do our little bit to help them. The smiles on the children's faces were magical."
