Health and Social Care students have organised a raffle and cake sale as the first part of a fundraising project for Cystic Fibrosis charities.
The students, who baked the cakes themselves, chose the charity because they had friends who had suffered from the illness and will donate the money raised to the Amanda Ward in Broadgreen Hospital.
Shannon Mclarney, Nicola Toole, Nicole Myers, Sarah Crompton, Maura Dorrian, Suzanne Mason and Frank Horrigan where inspired by a module they were studying on their course about significant life events.
After half term the students will visit the Amanda Ward for a tour and to hand over the cheque. They will then embark on a sponsored bike ride to continue to fundraise.
Peter Gooch, Health and Social Care Tutor said, “I am extremely proud of the students, they organised the event in a short space of time and all helped out baking cakes for the sale. They raised a fabulous £170 and we are looking forward to handing over the cheque to the ward.”
A big thank you to Carol Walker for donating a cake for the raffle.
