London Business students raise over £500 for charity
20 June 2011
Westminster Kingsway College Business students raise over £500 at events across London.
BTEC Level 3 National Diploma Business students held three events as part of their final projects, which collectively raised over £500 for charities, including Save the Children. The first of these events was a variety show called ‘Hidden Talents’, held at the College’s own King’s Cross Centre Theatre. Over ten acts from across London came along to the Centre to perform in front of a sold-out audience.
The success of the variety show was followed by a Fun Day at Coram’s Fields Park. Visitors were treated to a jumble sale, penalty shoot out, egg and spoon race, face painting and the sale of homemade cakes. The day was brought to an end with a prize raffle draw.
The last project was a premiere screening of ‘Swap-a-nomics’, an original film which followed students as they spend a day swapping roles with Westminster Kingsway College staff, including the Principal. The 40 minute film premiere was attended by College staff and students and money was raised from tickets and refreshment sales.
Sansan Ngo, was the student group leader for the ‘Swap-a-nomics’ Project and will be going to Oxford Brookes University in September to study a BA in Business Management.
Sansan said: “Working with my group for the project was really rewarding. Seeing our hard work pay off made it all worth it. We were pleased with the response from the staff and students and with the amount of money we raised.
“I’ll be leaving College in July with really good memories. The teachers and students on my course have all had a very positive impact on me and for that I’m extremely grateful.”
Scott Haragan, Westminster Kingsway College Tutor, said: “The whole point of this unit is to encourage students to use the business skills that they have learnt in the classroom in a real life situation and to engage in effective teamwork. I’m pleased to say that they have achieved this and we are really pleased with the work that they have produced. They are a credit to the College.”
