As part of their BTEC Extended Diplomas, Business, Marketing and Management students organised and promoted large-scale events to raise money for Young Minds UK and Brainwave.

They were visited by representatives of the charities and learned about fundraising and the fantastic work the charities do ahead of starting their planning.

On International Happiness Day (20th March) the students hosted a Fun Day and raised over £300 for Young Minds UK.

Alongside ‘wearing yellow’ they raised money through an Easter egg hunt, cake sale, raffle and a popular ‘soak a teacher’ stand. The day included a live band and board games and in addition to raising funds brought a lot of smiles to campus.

The following evening the students hosted a charity quiz and bingo event for friends, parents and staff. The sold-out event raised more than £700 for Brainwave.
