The staff and students were busy last Friday getting into the Pudsey Bear spirit and raising loads of cash for Children In Need 2010.

The Childcare department raised a massive £386 by holding a balloon race, raffle, name the teddy bear and guess the amount of sweets in the jar. Health and Social Care students collected £176.98 and Foundation Studies raised £80.

The Uniformed Public Services students organise a set of stock and raised money by selling cream cakes and buckets of water for students to throw at their lecturers.

Over at the Houghall Campus a group of Animal Care student raised £118.36 by taking over as a lecturer for a session and taking a group of dogs around the college as a cute factor in assisting in the fund raising! The Land Based Foundation Department raised over £100 by car washing, soaking people and a puppet show.

The College raised almost £1,000 and we would like to thank everyone who took part and contributed to the fundraising activities.
