Rochdale students charity initiative for Children in Need

Date published: 05 December 2012

Rochdale Sixth Form College held a fundraising event in aid of Children in Need and raised a staggering £311 to go to needy children across the UK.

The students and teachers all got involved, whether it was wearing their pyjamas or fancy dress to college, baking cakes for the popular cake stall or even just paying to get their nails done. There was also a great henna stall that was ran by two students who were experienced at creating unique eastern designs.

Nazia Kausar, Health and Social Care teacher at Rochdale Sixth Form College said: “We are absolutely delighted with the amount of support we have had to make our fundraising day such a success. The whole college got behind the day and together we raised £311. I would like to thank everyone involved for their time and generosity and look forward to raising even more next year. The students were so motivated and showed such fantastic enthusiasm to ensure that the event was a success.”

Children In Need provide grants to projects in the UK which focus on children and young people who are disadvantaged. The charity support small and large organisations which empower children and extend their life choices.
