Huddersfield New College today revealed that students have collected £200 for the Laura Crane Youth Cancer Trust, continuing to support the College’s Charity of the Year during these turbulent times.
Led by the Student Diversity Team, students have continued to support their chosen charity through a variety of small scale events, and also through the Rainbow Run, Walk or Wheel that took place just before the national lockdown and Campus was closed. Students made donations to run, walk or wheel and the event was joined by former HNC student Sarah Dransfield who is also an Ambassador for the Laura Crane Youth Cancer Trust.
Although the national lockdown, social distancing and being a Covid-19 secure College does of course make it more difficult to host fundraising events, the College community remains determined to support its chosen charity, and be kind during these turbulent times.
Erika Montgomery, Director of Diversity, Inclusion and Engagement comments: “We were delighted to be able to issue these funds to our Charity of the Year. Although of course in more usual times we’d be able to host bigger events, we know that every penny counts during these times and our young people have worked hard to adapt to the current circumstances to continue to help as best they can. Being kind to others is a key value in our College community and we look forward to continuing to support the important work of the Laura Crane Youth Cancer Trust in new and innovative ways during these challenging times.”
Pam Thornes, Charity Manager for the Laura Crane Youth Cancer Trust says: “Thank you for the donation for funds raised at Huddersfield New College. How fantastic, a big thank you to you all! We haven’t, as expected, been able to hold any events since March, so every penny truly counts right now.”
