Mouthwatering mischief raises cash for Red Nose Day

Published: March 22, 2021

Telford College students came up with some mouthwatering and mischievous ways of raising funds for Red Nose Day.

This year’s Red Nose Day was another incredible success, and the efforts of Telford College students helped to contribute to a nationwide fundraising total which topped £52 million.

Catering lecturer Julie Johnson said: “We have enthusiastic catering learners in both level one and foundation who wanted to raise money for by making cakes and biscuits.

“They had the opportunity to make, bake and decorate with a choice of finishing styles. Everyone’s design was unique and individual.”

Foundation learner Ryan Churm-Roberts said: “It’s really good that we were raising money for charity – and I really enjoy baking.”

Foundation students also raised more cash by holding a ‘Pick a Nose for Red Nose Day’ raffle.

People were invited to make a donation and pick a numbered nose from a hat, with prizes up for grabs.

Tutor, Donna Jefferies, said “It’s important to find new ways to support charities this year. We normally raise funds by selling food and items from our pop-up shop, but went for something a bit different.

“The students love activities like this; it helps them have a sense of normality.

“We also asked the foundation classes to take part in a remote quiz from their classrooms.”
