BUSINESS STUDENTS FUNDRAISE FOR NATIONAL CHARITY
Innovative Bury College Business students have raised money which they proudly donated to the British Heart Foundation.
Level 1 Business students presented a £137 cheque to the British Heart Foundation, a charity which is fighting to end heart disease and is the single biggest funder of cardiovascular research in the UK.
In order to raise the essential funds, Business students held fundraising stands at Bury College where staff and learners were invited to buy a range of confectionary items. The Business class worked together to plan, market and manage the event.
The Business class invited a representative from the British Heart Foundation to attend a presentation event where they discussed their fundraising initiative and how each individual student had contributed to the event.
During the presentation, students also shared their personal Bury College experiences and the different work experience opportunities they had completed. This included undertaking customer service, retail and administration responsibilities at companies such as estate agents, accountants and schools.
The group, who boast a 100% pass rate, were delighted to be able to present the cheque to such a worthy charity. Nick Harrison, Store Manager at the British Heart Foundation shop in Bury said, “The money that the students have raised means everything to the British Heart Foundation. They have raised money and awareness about what we as a charity do. The presentation event was lovely and it was nice to be a part of it.”
Jeannie Frodsham, Bury College Team Leader for Level 1 and Level 2 Vocational Business and Management added, “The students developed skills required for life and study. These included research, presentation, communication and team-working skills.”
