College joins in with the bear who cares

There will be plenty of fun ahead next week across West Nottinghamshire College’s campuses as students pull out all the stops for the annual Children in Need fundraising extravaganza.

Over £300 was raised last year and the college aims to top that amount with a range of fun-inspired activities lined up throughout the week (15-19 November).

All throughout the week activities such as bingo, attending lessons in pyjamas, sales of Pudsey bear items and book sales will help draw in donations of money.

Tuesday lunchtime will see students at the Derby Road campus swapping lunch for donuts when they’ll be challenged to eat the sweet treats without licking their lips.

A sponsored football match between higher education and public services students will be played on the college’s Derby Road sports field on the Wednesday morning.

Thursday will see students and staff using their memory skills with their version of the old TV favourite The Generation Game's conveyor belt game, complete with Pudsey bear cuddly toy.

The week will end with students taking over the job roles of senior executives for a day.  Students will follow the job roles of principal Asha Khemka OBE, as well as working with the directors of employer engagement, human resources and curriculum and standards.

Learner voice co-ordinator Sue Harries said: “Next week is one of the college’s prime fundraising weeks, when we see staff and students getting involved in having fun and raising vital funds for those less fortunate.

“The ‘take over my job’ activity on Friday will give the students a great insight into the way the college is run and provides an opportunity for them to ask senior members of staff questions about their roles.  Staff taking part will also be kindly donating to Children in Need.”
