Our Public Service students raised £1,551.76 through a range of activities.

Students and staff from the College’s Public Services department raised the money by holding a bake sale, head shave and fundraising at Halifax in the town centre. The department chose to help Barnsley Hospice as part of their module to organise an event, which enables students to understand the elements of running an event whilst raising money for a good cause.

Laura Wood, Public Services Course Leader at Barnsley College, said: “This was a well-planned, organised and enthusiastic event run by our students that showcased and developed learners’ leadership, promotion and marketing skills. They raised over £1,500 for a great cause and an amazing charity that will hopefully make a difference to many.”
