Charities – Henley Standard

Business students at Henley College raised £ 4,252 for charity.

Ellie Jones and Jessica Hogan, of Woodcote, Annabel Van Walwyk, of Sonning Common, and Melis Demirturk, of Reading, have chosen to support the Sue Ryder Hospice in Nettlebed, her Duchess of Kent Hospice in Reading, Alzheimer’s Research UK, Bloodwise and Debra blood cancer charity, which supports people living with genetic skin diseases.

The postgraduate students of the Extended Diploma worked in groups for a unit on “Managing a Corporate Event”. They have hosted events including a sponsored swim, pub quiz, kids’ fun day, car wash, Valentine’s Day quiz and raffle, with prizes donated by companies.

Ellie, 18, said: “My group and I all had personal connections with the charities we chose and we are all very happy that we were able to raise so much money and awareness for them.”

Annabel said: “We are very happy that all of our hard work has paid off.” Representatives from each charity attended a ceremony at the college to accept their checks.

Sarah Price, Business Professor, said: “Our students have proven to be an exceptional bunch, showing dedication and resilience in everything they do and the teaching team and I are very proud and privileged to have them. known over the past two years.
