Students raise almost £1000 for Children in Need

21st November 2018

Students and staff at The Technical Skills Academy in Barking raised almost £1000 for Children in Need last week.

They carried out a wide range of activities throughout the week, the highlight for many being the opportunity to splat fellow students in the face with a ‘pie’! Catering students baked a whopping 500 cakes and sold them to staff and fellow students. Other activities included: face painting by media make up students, hair dressing, crazy golf, a photo booth, a gaming competition and dress down day.

A raffle organised by childcare students raised the most money.

Tutor Jennifer Forster who coordinated the activities said:

“The day was hectic and we managed to raise £942.58. All the students including English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL), catering, hair & beauty, childcare, IT and business students contributed. A great team effort! Well done to all the students including the brave souls who took a splat for charity!”
