Barton Peveril Sixth Form College make a difference and raised £2,065 for Naomi House.
Between March 15th to 21st April, Barton Peveril students have led fundraising events in support of Naomi House, a hospice known to enhance families’ lives through the provision of supportive respite care and specialist medical care for life-limited children and young adults, from across the Central South of England.
The fundraising events were arranged and led by students studying Level 3 BTEC Business Studies, as part of their course students are taught to develop creative and transferable skills and experience real-life challenges.
Formerly of Bitterne Park School, Amelia Pearson speaks on the fundraiser:
Fundraising for Naomi House was an amazing opportunity. It involved a lot of teamwork, which allowed us to develop different transferable skills such as communication, organisation, problem solving, and multitasking skills. We also spread out our tasks across 4 of us which allowed us to build trust and also be responsible. I think it was worthwhile as it allowed us to be creative and build and develop our skills!
Former student of Regents Park Community College, Faheem Rashid also speaks on fundraiser:
Managing an event for Naomi House gave me a lot of benefits such as how to organise. the process beforehand and the roles people need to have in order to raise a big event and with this we were successful. It was great raising so much money for the charity as everyone helped and everyone loved the event. This will help me in the future on the skills needed for an event
