Students raise £600 for Children In Need

Students at our Openshaw Campus have raised a fantastic £600 for Children In Need!

The Year 1, Level 3 students on our Public Services and Criminology courses designed their own fundraising events for this year’s campaign and carried them out across our College campuses to raise money.

While some students used their baking skills to hold a cake sale, others showed off their craft skills and sold handmade jewellery. 

The fundraising formed part of their practical assessment for the Policing Leadership unit and also complements the largest part of their first criminology exam, where they must plan and market activities to promote a campaign for change.

Tutors Holly Hawkes and Stephen Helsby said:

These fundraising activities gave learners the opportunity to collaborate with their peers in and outside of the class, and we were proud to see learners make new friends and solve problems to overcome obstacles during their activities.

The money was handed to Children In Need at a presentation in the Openshaw lecture theatre last week, which was also a chance for our students to celebrate their achievement.

Well done to our students for their fundraising efforts and thank you to all colleagues who supported them.
