College Care department dress to impress to raise money for charity

You are here

Over the last month staff and students from the College’s Childcare and Health and Social Care departments have taken part in inspiring efforts to raise money for charity.

Back in November, they wore their pyjamas and spotty clothes to college for a day in order to raise money for Children in Need. Their efforts raised over £100 for the cause. 
Elizabeth Correia and Angel Simpson, two students who participated on the day, said that not only was it interesting to wear pyjamas to college for the day, but it really helped to stimulate an interest in the cause.

Elizabeth said: “We wore ridiculous costumes to draw as much attention to the charity as possible. It was really fun and caught everyone’s attention when they were passing by.” 

Angel added: “The costumes made everyone laugh and helped to engage other students in conversation. I really enjoyed encouraging people to donate.”

The money raised for Children in Need followed efforts by the Health and Social Care students to raise money for the Alzheimer Society. The students took part in the Bournemouth Memory Walk along the Bournemouth seafront dressed in Memory Walk clothing to show their support for the cause. Their efforts saw them raise an impressive £130.
