Teacher Hannah Wilson collected the items, which were donated by Sussex charity The Budding Foundation, which works to support children and young people throughout the county.

Charity founder Clive Gravett said: “The school club was very pleased with our donation and we look forward to hearing how the pupils enjoy engaging with nature through the germination, propagation and harvesting stages.”
