In the season of goodwill, some of the Bury College staff team got together to try and put smiles on the faces of some members of our local community. 

Endeavour is a Domestic Abuse Charity which supports all victims of domestic abuse, including all members of the family and their pets. Every year they create a wish tree for their service users with the aim of people supporting the charity and buying a gift. Many of the service users may not get a gift at all if it wasn’t for the charity and its supporters. 

This year, the A-level team alongside the Hair and Beauty team joined forces and granted 36 wishes for people from a range of backgrounds and ages. These wishes included a toy car for a 5-year-old boy, some hair curlers for a 14-year-old girl, a biscuit hamper for a 73-year-old man and even a toy for a pet parrot. 

Lauren Heyes-Mullan, Assistant Curriculum Manager for Social Sciences at Bury College said: “I have been a trustee for Endeavour Project for five years and every day I am amazed by the wonderful and lifesaving work they do. The generosity of those here at Bury College has been amazing and I am proud to be working with such a supportive and giving team. They will not see the faces of those who open those gifts at Christmas, but I hope they know that they will have made these people’s Christmases a little easier this year. Thank you all!”
