Halloween was a scary successPublished: November 2, 2017
Students and staff were invited to dress up on Tuesday for Halloween to help raise money for charity.
Creative media students ran a number of activities to help the Halloween themed day run smoothly including a ‘freaky photo’ booth, guess the name of the deadly spider, what’s the weight of the giant pumpkin, how many poisonous sweets in the jar and decorating real/ceramic skulls.
Some of our talented health and social care students took part in face painting-painting activities which in itself generated a healthy donation to charity.
Tuesday was also the launch of our college charity, staff spoke to students at Haybridge Road campus who were asked to vote for a charity we will now be raising money for throughout the year.
Over 300 students voted and the charity with the most votes was Severn Hospice. The Georgia Trust Foundation will remain the elected charity for King Street campus.
Chelsea Jones, a health and social care student, said: “It was a fun and easy way to raise a lot of money for charity today. It’s great the college puts on these types of events where everyone can get involved.”
Aaron Davis, a student council member who dressed up as the Incredible Hulk, said: “My group really enjoyed the day. I think it’s good tutors dressed up and wore face paint because it encourages students to get involved. It was also good to see students selling items in the shop.’’
Dan Blasczyk, enrichment coordinator, added “It was fantastic to see staff and students dress up and work together to raise money for our college charity. We will now be running a number of fundraising events throughout the year to raise even more donations.”
