Students and staff from the Health & Social Care and Early Years National Diploma and BTEC Level 2 Diploma in Health & Social Care got to work baking a mouth-watering array of cakes and biscuits for their Marie Curie tea party. The tea party took place in one of the college’s specialised Health & Social Care rooms, but students also took trays around the college to raise more money.
“We raised an amazing £250,” says Health & Social Care teacher Sue Dulgarn. “This could pay for a 9-hour stint in the home of a terminally ill person or one day in a hospice.”
Liz Thrussell, Health & Social Care Level 2 Course Team leader adds: “This is an excellent way of bringing coursework to life. It provided our students with an opportunity to study the work of Marie Curie Cancer Care in greater depth as well as demonstrating how fund-raising efforts can really make a difference.”
