Sports Learners Smash Fundraising Targets for Children in Need

Posted: 28th November 2023 - 10:14am

Learners from across our Sports and Esports programmes have undertaken two weeks of fundraising efforts to raise an incredible £1,857 for Children in Need.

Sports and Esports staff and students have been spotted around campus donning fancy dress and sporting some eyebrow-raising facial hair all in the name of charity over the last fortnight, aiming to raise as much money as possible for the BBC’s nationwide charity.

Since 2012, the College has raised more than £15,000 for Children in Need. According to Curriculum Manager for Sport, Danny Lee, the team are setting their sights on breaking their record. “It’s been a phenomenal effort of all the students and staff who took part raising money this year.”

“We want to raise as much money and awareness as possible for this great cause. We have raised an amazing amount for Children in Need and want to add more to that amount. The support from our College community has been brilliant.”

Fundraising is a vital enrichment activity for the entire community at Loughborough College, as co-founders of the national Good for Me, Good for FE campaign, which encourages staff and students in FE settings across the UK to participate in donating time, money, and items to support local and national charity causes.

Since the beginning of the academic year, staff and students have collectively raised over £8,500 for various charities and non-profit organisations close to their hearts.
