ALL THE FUN OF THE FAIR IN COLLEGE CHARITY WEEK
Fun and games will be on the timetable during a colourful week of fundraising events at City of Wolverhampton College next week.
The annual purple and teal fundraiser – based on the college’s corporate colours – will feature the popular games of hook-a-duck and hoopla, a pick-and-mix sweet stall, and a sale of cup cakes freshly made and decorated by bakery students, as well as football matches for staff and students organised by learners studying for sports qualifications.
Throughout the week students and staff will also be encouraged to wear wacky purple and teal outfits to lessons in return for a £1 donation to charity.
Andrea Dill-Russell, director of student services at the college, said: “Following the success of our purple and teal fundraising days over the last two years we have decided to organise activities throughout the whole week so that more students have chance to join in.
“Students and staff at the college work extremely hard every day to ensure they reach the standards required to achieve their qualifications and move on to their chosen careers and this is an opportunity for everyone to have some fun and raise money for charity at the same time.”
All money raised during the week will be donated to Wolverhampton-based charity Promise Dreams which makes dreams come true for seriously and terminally ill children, and their families, across the UK.
