Last week was National Doughnut Week, an event which aims to raise funds for children’s hospices nationally. So the College staff and students joined in the fun to help raise funds for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice (EACH), in Ipswich, through the sale of designer Krispy Kremes doughnuts.
This year the Charity Committee was determined to beat last year’s sales, and reached a staggering 2,436 doughnuts! Profits from the sales which raised just under £790, will go some way to providing funds for EACH to continue supporting families across the region and caring for children and young people with life-threatening conditions.
The local area’s contact for EACH, Ms Vanessa Ball, has been invited to a cheque presentation ceremony during a College assembly this coming Monday.
We are extremely grateful to Richard Ashton who had to make a very early start to the day in order to collect the doughnuts from the factory in Enfield and get them to the College in time for morning break.
The event was a tremendous success and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their treats!
