Atlantic College Alumni Create Brand New Peace Garden!

Peace garden

Last week, six UWC Atlantic College volunteers (all alumni) returned to the College to create a brand new peace garden!

All of the students and staff at the College would like to give a big thank you to the volunteers - Sue Dean, Helen Richards, Carolina Valmarana, Ghislaine Brandolini, Sian Jones and Andrew Duncan, all of whom attended UWC Atlantic College between 1972 and 1976.

The volunteers have also asked if they could thank alumna and board member, Jill Longson for donating the benches - they really do look wonderful!

As the garden isn't 100% complete, the Atlantic College volunteers are hoping that the current students will be able to keep up the maintenance of the peace garden, as part of their weekly service duties.

After a long weeks work, we were happy to hear that the group decided to enjoy a peaceful Chinese takeaway, and have a well deserved catch up!

Thank you to the volunteers!

‘From the person who donated £20, to the person who donated £2000 - thank you. I am extremely grateful and indebted… I will do everything in my power to make sure that the contribution made is going to mean something more…’
