Barton Peveril Sixth Form College students have raised over £7,000 for charity during the 2021/22 academic year.
Students from across the College have led fundraising events and donated money to charities locally, nationally and internationally throughout the academic year supporting organisations including BBC Children in Need, Macmillan, Unicef’s Ukraine Appeal, and Anthony Nolan Charity.
Many of the fundraisers were led by the College’s Student Committee, who planned and ran events for their fellow pupils including at the College’s Class of 2022 Celebration, which was attended by 2,000 students.
Speaking on behalf of the Student Committee, student Jack West said:
“As the Student Committee, we have been making efforts throughout the year to help raise money for a local charity and a charity that can help with a wider issue. This year, we split the funds raised between No Limits and towards the Ukraine Crisis.”
“Efforts have also been put in by other members of the student body throughout the year, including the charity events run by business students to help out the community and develop their skills.
“Hopefully next year, as an entire College, we can all do our part to help out again. Part of the College’s values is giving back to the community, so we will continue with other events we can all play a part in.”
