At the end of November, Richmond upon Thames College’s (RuTC) Supported Learning students held a cake sale to raise money for the charity, Children in Need.
The students were asked to decide on various fundraising ideas and they decided that a cake sale would be perfect as it combines multiple skills they have learnt during the term including handling money, cooking and customer service.
As well as the cake sale, the students created their own Pudsey donation boxes, taking them around the college classrooms and communal areas for contributions.
The students also participated in a ‘dance and balance’ challenge where the group of students set themselves the challenge of dancing & combining balance exercises for an hour. They chose their favourite music & set to the challenge.
Overall, the students raised an impressive £314 for the charity.
Suzanne Rodrigues, Supported Learning teacher, was delighted with the amount raised as well as the students’ hard work, saying “All the students and staff involved have worked especially hard to make these fundraising activities for Children in Need so successful. We have had many generous supporters along the way and thanks to this we were able to raise £314”.
