Mr David Winn OBE, chairman of leading corrosion prevention and sealing specialists, Winn & Coales (Denso) Ltd, has been recognised for his ongoing support of Eastbourne College with a building on campus named in his honour.

The opening of the Winn Building, named in recognition of the College’s greatest living benefactor, signals the completion of Project 150 at the site in East Sussex, which saw a £33 million investment in the College campus to celebrate the school’s 150th anniversary.
