Students Raise Bucket-Loads For Children In Need 2013

South Cheshire College

Staff and students at South Cheshire College joined forces to raise bucket-loads of cash for the BBC Children in Need 2013 Appeal.

Staff and students hosted their own ‘pyjama party’ and staged a range of fun activities to raise cash for the appeal during an action-packed day at the College’s Crewe campus.

The annual fundraising event captured the hearts and minds of the nation on Friday 15th November 2013.

College Student Council members co-ordinated the fundraising activities and students turned up at college wearing fancy dress and pyjamas before sweeping through the campus with collection buckets.


Activities included a Pop-Up Coffee shop set up by the Hair and Beauty department, a Pudsey bear treasure hunt and a tombola, while men were able to have their legs waxed for a small fee.Cake stalls, raffles and other activities throughout the day were organised to raise money for the popular cause.

Students from different college courses, including travel and tourism and child care also staged their own fundraising activities in their areas.

Earlier in the week, students from the Entry Level Business and Administration group set up a stall in the College Crescent to raise money towards the appeal and they sold different sized jars of sweets and cakes.

The Entry Level Independent Living Skills group also baked home-made cakes and flapjack to raise cash.

Clive Armitage, Youth and Community Worker at South Cheshire College, said:
“We were very pleased to support Children in Need with a series of events again this year.
There were lots of activities happening around the College campus and staff and students have been very generous once again with their donations.”

South Cheshire College supports a number of fundraising activities throughout the year and the Student Council is actively involved in organising them.
