College 'nose' how to fundraise

A week of fundraising has kicked off this week as staff and students at West Nottinghamshire College get on board with fun and antics for Red Nose Day.

The student experience team will be hosting two sporting competitions today (Tuesday 10 March) as a rowing competition gets the heart rates going at the Derby Road campus, followed by a ‘killer’ pool tournament and fancy dress over at the construction campus in Kirkby-in-Ashfield.

On Wednesday (11 March) queues are expected to be long as tutors get splashed for cash. Students will be paying a donation to douse their favourite member of staff with wet sponges in the stocks at the Derby Road campus.

Things take a more relaxing tone on Thursday (12 March) when beauty therapy students from the Ashfield Centre’s salon pamper people with nail painting, mini massages and cake nibbles for a small donation.

And on Red Nose Day itself, a fun-packed day is planned in the covered courtyard at the Derby Road campus. Throughout the day people can get involved in red nose bopping, a karaoke, a speed bounce competition, space hopper relays, table tennis matches and during the lunch break a big table tennis competition takes place and an ‘It’s a Knockout’ style challenge.

Students’ Union president Will Jordan said: “It’s an exciting week and we’ve got a great line-up of challenges for our students to enjoy. We’re feeling pretty confident that we’re going to raise a lot of money this year for one of our favourite national charities.”
