Doncaster College students have collected thousands of pounds in aid of a local charity.

Every year Hair and Beauty students adopt a local charity and throughout the academic year put on loads of events to raise money. Last year they chose the M25 Housing and Support group as they had supported some of the College’s students in the past.

Students put on an array of fundraising events such as raffles, spa days, non-uniform days, princess pamper parties, and at the end were able to hand over to the charity a cheque for a superb sum of over £2300.

Kelly English said, ‘The main reason we chose M25, is they have a division that supports young people under 18 years of age who find themselves temporarily homeless. They find them short-term accommodation quickly and act as a mediator between parents and the young person to support a return to home.
The students involvement in charity fundraising helps them develop team work and enterprising skills as well as developing their sense of social responsibility.’

Sam Archer, Team Leader at the Organisation, said, ‘We are so grateful to all the students that raised money for the M25 Housing and Support Group. With the donation this will assist the M25 to pay for training for clients to assist them to gain employment, learning visits to key places and assist clients with barriers to accommodation. We would like to thank all those for their hard work and involvement in raising money for homeless people’.

M25 is a charity set up in Doncaster in 1994. It is committed to preventing homelessness and relieve, support, and assist homeless persons in the Doncaster District and surrounding area by providing accommodation.
