College students got grubby for a good cause; persuading staff and students to paint their hands and leave their mark on a special noticeboard for Children in Need.

Over 50 students and staff got involved donating £1 each to leave their handprint, take their chances in a lucky dip bucket or name the reindeer, raising a total of £96.

While working towards a Diploma in Business Administration, Level 1 Enterprise students develop skills in literacy and numeracy as well as being involved in managing community and business events. A number of them are also ESOL students (English Speakers of Other Languages) developing their English skills on the course.

Tutor Diane Bainbridge said:

The students were motivated to raise as much money as possible for children who were not as fortunate as themselves and needed help from others. They worked well as a team and did a great job.


Student Joe Lucas said:

We enjoyed the things we did and hope the money we raised will help others less fortunate than ourselves.
