Our charity work
Every year College staff and students work hard to fundraise for various charities. in the last two years, we raised just under £33,000 and supported over 40 charities - which was just amazing. Take a look and see how we are getting on so far in the 19-20 academic session.
(If you are planning a college fundraising event please email email@example.com and tell us all about it so we can include your fundraising efforts!)
