COLOURFUL CLOTHING COMBINATIONS AT COLLEGE’S CHARITY DAY
Purple pullovers, pyjamas and pumps teamed with teal tops, trousers and tights are some of the colourful combinations that will be sported by staff and students at City of Wolverhampton College on its annual charity fundraising day on Thursday (March 26).
The college is encouraging learners and tutors to raid their wardrobes and pitch up in wacky mis-matched outfits of its corporate colours for its popular Purple and Teal Day.
All staff and students taking part will be asked to make a £1 donation and the total amount raised will be split between Wolverhampton-based charity Promise Dreams and national charity Epilepsy Action.
The event will also support the Good Shepherd Ministry with staff and students donating food, clothing and bedding to the charity that provides support to homeless and disadvantaged people in the city.
Mark Robertson, principal of the college – who will be sporting a purple flowery shirt, teal jumper and striped tie – said: “Following the success of our first Purple and Teal Day last year we’re going for an even bigger, better and more colourful turnout this time.
“Staff and students work extremely hard every day to achieve great results and this is an opportunity for everyone to have a bit of fun and support three worthwhile causes at the same time.”
