On Friday evening members of Cronton Sixth Form College sports department travelled to Liverpool to present a cheque for £1,556.34 from the College live on the BBC1’s Children in Need show.
Fundraising started early at the college with the Business students setting up a stall in reception selling raffle tickets, guess the sweets in a jar and a tombola. Three students also raised additional funds by being sponsored not to talk for an hour not to gel their hair and not to touch their mobile phone for the whole day.
On Friday 19th November staff and students were invited to dress up and down for Children in Need. Some staff decided that fancy dress was the way to do it with Fiona from Shrek and Scooby Doo being amongst the best dressed,
Foundation students had been busy making ‘Pudsey Bear’ cakes to sell around the Kingsway Campus and student Kris Selby raised money by shaving his beard off with the help of hairdressing students.
Cronton Campus Sporting Centre of Excellence, organised a Chrildren in Need Carnival, including a football shootout, video games, a tug of war and darts, to name a few. Sports tutors Mark Brennan and Iain Douglas had their legs waxed by Level 2 beauty students at the delight of their own students.
Health and Social Care students at Kingsways and Runcorn turned up in force in their pyjamas touring the campus with buckets and collecting everyone’s spare change.
All of this and more contributed to the fantastic total of £155.6.34 raised across the college for Children in Need.
