Students and staff raise £1,295.38 for partner charity

Monday 19 August 2019

This academic year, Richmond upon Thames College’s (RuTC) students and staff raised £1,295.38 to support Shooting Star Children’s Hospices, the leading children’s hospice charity, caring for babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions.

Supporting the charity over the last 3 years is important to RuTC, as it contributes to the commitment to provide essential care to children and their families. Supported Learning students hosted a Christmas bake sale, which raised £65.50, and a raffle raised another £157.87. In addition, the students collected the content of 5p bottles from all over the college throughout the year and raised £251.82. The college’s training restaurant Merits hosted two charity lunches, adding £517. Student Services organised additional activities around Christmas time, including a staff pop up choir, festive dress day, raffle and bake sale, raising another £303.09.

Sharon Cousins, Assistant Principal Student Experience at RuTC, said: “Shooting Star Children’s Hospices is a very worthwhile charity which RuTC actively supports. We are delighted that the money students and staff raised will benefit such an important service to the local community.”
