Students raise 2,287 for hospice charity
Published 24/02/14



BUSINESS students at The Henley College have raised 2,287 for Sue Ryder.

They have been taking part in the charity’s Big Wigs Business Challenge as part of their BTEC diploma course on managing a business event.

They organised and promoted a range of events ranging from sponsored cycle rides and cake sales to quiz nights and an event at the town’s Over-60s Club. The winning group comprised Vanessa Mesquita, Jennifer Duckett, Christian Leaver, Louise Peddle and Nina Nuzi, who raised a total of 1,185 with events including a charity golf day at Caversham Heath Golf Club.

College principal Tom Espley said: “I am very proud of our students’ achievements. This is a great opportunity to learn important business skills and at the same time contribute so much to the local community.” Pru Sly, of Sue Ryder, said: “This was a great achievement by all the students.”

This is the sixth year of the challenge in which teams are given 60 to turn into a much money as they can for the Sue Ryder hospice in Nettlebed.


This year’s competition has a theme of 60 years to mark the foundation of the charity by Lady Ryder in 1953.
