Title:Money rolls in for Children in Need

College students and staff raised hundreds of pounds for charity as the Children in Need frenzy hit Doncaster College.

So far over £800 has been raised but the pot is expected to rise as more money rolls in from across the College’s sites in the next few days

The College’s Hub campus was filled with students dressed to impress many in onesies and fancy dress.

Hayley Goddard, a Level 2 Aviation student assisted by Chloe Halpin and Danielle Parker, planned and organised a terrific fund raising event as part of problem solving and team work skills linked to their studies, supported by Tutor Alan Madin, and Emily Shaw and Mike Batty from the Students Union, they also managed to persuade Alan to dress as a pink fairy for the day, which raised £200.

Learners from Catering, Travel and Cabin crew all joined in to help in the activities, and tasty goodies such as cakes and sweets were on sale, cream pies were thrown at volunteers in the stocks, there was tombola, guess the weight of the cake, mock cocktails, bungee run and sumo suits and the book stall was a complete sell out.

Radio Sheffield broadcast live, from the Hub, during their afternoon show.

Other activities were going on across college and many students and staff have joined in the fun, amongst them Childcare students came in their onesies and PJs and staff dressed as ‘foxy ladies’.

A College spokesman said: ‘It’s great to see students getting involved in fundraising events like this. They have put a lot of effort into their activities and it all pays off when they see the amount of money raised.’
