A team of Health and Social Care students from Coleg Llandrillo recently spent their lunch hour raising funds for two charities.
The group organised a charity event at the college's Rhos-on-Sea campus, which included a tombola and a 'guess the name of the teddy' competition, with all the proceeds going to Barnardo's and Noah's Ark charities. They raised over £100 in a short period of time.
The charitable Level 1 students planned the event as part of their 'working as part of a team/running an event' course module. They sourced donations for their stalls from staff, students and local businesses.
The students spent months preparing for the day and researching which charities to choose. Tutor Alison Daubney-Jones said:
Congratulations to all the students involved; this was the culmination of months of hard work. They worked great as a team and were determined to source a great selection of prizes.
Student Emilee Lloyd from Abergele said:
We were delighted to raise funds for both Barnardo's and Noah's Ark charities. With Noah's Ark, we wanted to support a charity from Wales and one that was less well known than most of the larger UK charities.
