Year-six children at Steyning Primary School heard about the festive lunch and asked what they could do to help.

Lizzie Messina-Reeve, team leader, said: “As most of my class are from Steyning, they had heard about this wonderful man and what he is doing for others this Christmas. They asked me to email him and ask if we could help in any way.

“We have created Christmas decorations and written Christmas cards for all the people who will be joining Igor on Christmas Day.”
