On Tuesday 10th November, our Level 3 Public Services students simulated a casualty evacuation to raise money for the Royal British Legion in aid of Remembrance Day.
Carrying two casualties on stretchers between them, the students walked from Eastleigh College to the war memorial in Eastleigh town centre where they were met by a member of the Royal British Legion.
They were met at the war memorial in Eastleigh by Bill Ronan, a previous Public Services staff member at Eastleigh College, and a standard bearer from the Royal British Legion.
Bill Ronan said “It was great to see the students so smart and taking the event so seriously – and even wanting to carry the dummies back to College!”
Helen Carr, Lecturer in Public Services at Eastleigh College, said “The students were a credit to their course and carried out the event with the outmost respect and dignity. I am very proud of their efforts and amazed at the amount they have raised between them for the Royal British Legion.”
Through personal sponsorship the students managed to raise an amazing £318.94.
In a bid to support the Solent and South Hampshire’s economic recovery in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, Eastleigh College has launched an ambitious and collaborative pledge which aims to benefit individuals, employers and communities across the region. The pledge has been developed with support from a numbers of stakeholders including business groups, employers, councils, schools and University of Portsmouth.
The College is delighted to offer you the chance to spread your fees into monthly instalments over the length of your chosen course if you are unable to pay for the full amount of your course in advance of its start date.
