Stanmore College’s Health and Social Care students are not just studying a subject that leads to caring professions, they are also already positively impacting on those in need through fundraising, volunteering and raising awareness.
Thursday, 8th December saw philanthropy in action as the students held a Christmas Market to raise funds for the Homeless Charity, ‘Shelter from the Storm’.
Comments from the considerate students included ‘the event was a good experience to participate in, and an opportunity to raise money for homeless people’, ‘it was joyful, fun and entertaining’, ‘it was an excellent event and very productive’.
Health and Social Care teacher, Bibi Sultan told us ‘I am very proud of my students who participated and contributed. I am grateful to all my colleagues who also came to support us’.
An impressive £360 was raised for Shelter from the Storm, a completely free emergency night shelter providing bed, dinner and breakfast for people who have experienced homelessness every night of the year.
