It’s been a jam-packed month of fundraising at Middlesbrough College, and boy, have we enjoyed it.
With a trio of charitable events in the shape of a Macmillan Coffee Morning, Jeans for Genes and Wear it Pink Day, students and staff across campus have been doing their bit to show their support.
Following the success at the vibrant Teesside Hospice Colour Run back in September, we were understandably excited for a day full of coffee and cake to raise money for Macmillan. We were thrilled to see so many getting involved in the coffee morning, baking a wide range of phenomenal (and eye-catching) treats, helping us to raise a fantastic £524.47 for the charity.
When it came to Jeans for Genes, denim was of course the dress code for the day, with us throwing it back to the 90s thanks to some serious double-denim looks being sported. With a nail bar, window display and a strict dress code, we successfully raised £66.38, which will go towards individuals and families with genetic disorders.
More recently, we raised money for Wear it Pink Day, which again proved to be a real hit at the College. The nationwide event has been in place since 2002, inviting the young and old to dress in pink and raise funds for the UK’s largest Breast Cancer charity, Breast Cancer Now. Thanks to staff and students wearing their rosy attire, we’ve been able to raise £114.26 for the cause.
It’s been a fantastic month of fundraising, and we want to thank everyone who has taken part - we’ve loved seeing everyone come together!
