Students from across Bury College have been leading the way in remembrance commemorations across Bury.

Our Public Services students were busy selling poppies in the foyer of Marks and Spencer in The Rock and at Bury College. They raised an incredible £5,847 with all money going to the Royal British Legion to help them continue their vital work in supporting the Armed Forces community.

On Remembrance Sunday, eight students from across different subjects took part in the Remembrance Day parade to show their respect for the fallen.

Two of our T Level Health students, Roha Aftab and Paige Earwicker, took part in the march that went from the Town Hall to the Cenotaph. Both spoke about how honoured they were to be involved in such an important event. Roha, a former Unsworth Academy pupil, said: “It was nice to be involved in such an important event and see so many people.

Paige, a former Tottington High School pupil, added: “I feel honoured to have been able to represent my course and Bury College during the Remembrance Day event. “

Following the march, Jordana Hollis (Public Services Level 2) and Ash Nabb (Public Services Level 3) laid the wreath at the Memorial on behalf of all Bury College staff and students.

Talking about the parade, Simon Taylor, Bury College Level 3 Team Leader for Public Services, said: “The students acquitted themselves admirably both on the various stands and during the parade.  It was great for the students from different departments to participate in the parade and members of the public have since contacted me to say how impressed they were, especially given the poor weather.”
