Level 2 Business Administration students hosted a Winter Fair at the College, in support of the Rotary Club Shoebox Scheme. The Scheme sends shoe boxes full of gifts and useful household items to under privileged people in Central and Eastern Europe.
Staff and students paid an entrance fee to the Fair and provided a donation for the shoeboxes, such as soap, toothbrushes, matchbox toys, flannels, pencils and notepads. Fun activities at the Fair included guessing the number of sweets in a jar, a sweet challenge and spin the wheel. There was also a raffle with prizes kindly donated by staff and local retailers, Henna hand painting, popcorn cups and delicious cakes for sale.
Business Administration Lecturer Jo Landon said, "As part of the course students have to plan and hold an event. The students came up with the idea of supporting the Rotary Shoebox Scheme and set up the Fair. I've been really impressed with their efforts in organising everything, they've worked very hard. As a result, we are hoping to be able to provide 25 to 30 shoeboxes for the scheme".

We are delighted to have been recognised by The Times Education Awards for the support we provide to students who need to re-sit their GCSEs after leaving school. The excellent results our students achieved last summer include more than twice the national average gaining a maths GCSE, testament to the dedicated team of teachers who use innovative approaches and techniques to inspire our learners.
