A matter of course

Shrewsbury Colleges Group Business students recently raised a whopping £1,500 for local charities by organising multiple fundraising events.

Each year, teams of Level 3 Extended Diploma in Business students organise fundraisers as part of their course. Students have to plan, implement and evaluate a real-life event in groups of four. This year there were nine teams in total – six of those volunteered their time at College events and the other three organised their own events. All involved get to practice first-hand life-skills of setting up and running an event with the purpose of making a profit for charity.

The events raised over £1,500 for Lingen Davies, Hope House and Severn Hospice. There was a cheese and wine night in Clayton Hall, a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory afternoon tea in Origins Restaurant and a summer barbecue at Bomere Heath Cricket Club.
