Students put their best foot forward to raise funds

STUDENTS and staff at The Henley College helped to raise more than £5,000 for a wide range of charities and causes last term.

Nearly £1,000 was raised for Oxfam as part of the charity’s Oxjam and Send A Sheep campaigns, whilst the Student Union raised more than £150 for Children In Need through a fancy-dress themed collection.

Business students raised an impressive £3,000 as part of Sue Ryder’s Big Wigs business challenge. Organised activities ranged from a charity golf day in Reading to a successful event at Henley’s Over 60s Club.

Students and staff from the College’s Pathways Department, which supports students with learning difficulties and disabilities, raised more than £500 through a wide range of activities including a popular tombola and raffle.

The college’s Amnesty Youth Group raised both money and awareness for women’s rights with activities including a lively December music event. At the same time staff raised funds for the Philippines Typhoon appeal through a charity raffle.
