Students see where fundraising goes

After a year of raising money, a group of Health and Social Care students from South Gloucestershire and Stroud College headed out this week to go and visit their chosen charity.

The level one learner’s went to the Children’s Hospice South West on Charlton Farm in Wraxall to hand over a cheque for nearly £175, after the latest and last bout of fundraising activities for the year.

The Children’s Hospice South West offer care to life-limited children and their families from across the South West and the SGS learners got to see the wonderful work the hospice does.

This is the second year that this charity has been chosen by the Health and Social Care students. Last year the department rose over £200 for this worthy cause.

Billie Mae Rogers, aged 16 from Yate commented:”The children and families at the hospice are extremely lucky to have such an amazing place to go for respite care.”

Liz Garnham-Moore, Tutor, comments: "I am so proud of my students. They have worked really hard, organising different activities, to raise money for the Children’s Hospice. Handing over the donations and seeing where the funds go shows the students that their hard work has paid off.”
