College students pull out all the stocks for Children in Need

18 December 2014

Children in Need 2013
Our Student Association has been working hard to raise money for Children in Need this week. Events saw college staff and one brave student in the stocks, cake sales, sweet raffles, nail bar treatments, live music and charity waxing.

Students and staff surrounded the stocks to watch and get involved with drenching the Principal Campbell Christie CBE, Vice Principal James Taylor and Student Services Manager James Langdon. Also, Uniformed Public Services student Jack Palmer volunteered for the stocks and have his fellow students pelt him with wet sponges, all in the name of charity.

After his soaking, Campbell commented:

“This was good fun. Not only do we want to do right by Children in Need and raise money for a good cause but it’s really nice to encourage the students when they arrange things like this. They are creating a vibrant college, and we want to show them that they can take charge and organise events.”

Travel and Tourism student Hannah McCombie-Crellin paid £5 to throw a whole bucket of water over James Langdon:

“I like James but this is really fun and it means I’m doing my bit, donating to charity.”

In our Star Café diners were serenaded with live music from A Level student Dan Jones and Performing Arts student Alicia Rutland and tempted with cakes and sweet raffles. Beauty Therapy students provided further entertainment by waxing the back of Facilities Manager Charlie Sharp and offering nail treatments to students and staff. The events saw a total of £168 being raised for the cause.

Chrissi Hotston, A Level student and one of the organisers of the fundraising, added:

‘I’m really grateful to all who did participate, the students really made an effort showing support and raising money for Children in Need.”
