College 'nose' how to make money for charity

06 October 2014

Students and staff took part in a variety of different activities in support of Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day last week, raising almost £400 for the cause.

Media student Nick Jones raised £35.57 by dressing in a red nose costume and carrying a fundraising bucket round with him all day to collect donations. 

Foundation studies students raised over £100 by paying a £1 donation to wear red, completing a sponsored mile long relay walk around our Wick Hill site’s refectory and organising a Red Nose Day sweepstake.

Electrical Installation students raised £52 through a ‘wear a hat day’ and a sponsored leg wax of student Tom Maglaras who bravely volunteered to let students in our beauty salon perform the waxing.

Childcare and Health & Social Care students raised £75 collecting donations dressed in their favourite onesies and pyjamas.

One of our Breakthrough English groups raised money by telling silly jokes. The jokes all had to start with question words – what, why, when, where, how and who – and the group had a great time making people laugh as they raised money.

The staff also got involved in fundraising with a Comic Relief Bake off. Seven staff teams submitted an entry of 12 red nose themed cakes to be judged by our college judging panel, including the new Chef Manager of our Star Café, Paul Bunce. The ‘Truly Scrumptious’ team made up of staff from our Student Services department were victorious. The remaining cakes were then sold to staff with a total of £106 raised.


Reception staff at our Church Road and Wick Hill centres also got in on the fund raising act with Church Road raising £20 from their collection box and Wick Hill collecting £75 through sales of their delicious homemade cakes in their reception area.

Our college mini bus driver Rick Wilson raised a further £20 by collecting donations from his passengers.
