Huddersfield New College has revealed that the College is hosting a festive fundraising drive for our chosen Charities of the Year, Young Minds and KCRASAC. 

Our Make, Give, Gift enrichment group have spent much of the first term making gifts to be sold and raffled for our festive fundraising drive, and have recently have been busy persuading local businesses to make donations for hampers. Now the team have over 12 fantastic festive hampers available to be won. Some of the prizes on offer include Marks and Spencers, Nando’s and Wilkinson’s gift vouchers, along with American sweet and pamper hampers. Some members of the Make, Give, Gift enrichment group are pictured above with the items which have been donated by local businesses. 

We also have a signed Huddersfield Town Football Club ball to be won, along with a range of small gifts which are available to purchase. 

All donations/proceeds made will be split equally between Young Minds (providing 24 hour mental health support) and KCRASAC (supporting people who have experienced sexual violence). Both charities were chosen by staff and students at College earlier this term. 

Raffle tickets are available for students on a contactless basis (donations in a bucket, or payment via contactless card) in Reception this week, and staff can make a purchase on the same basis in the Staff Well-being Room. Raffle tickets are priced at a £1 per strip. 

Erika Montgomery, Director of Equality Diversity and Inclusion comments: “Each year we host key fundraising drives for our Chosen Charities of the Year. The festive season sees one of these, and our Make, Give, Gift group have been hard at work handcrafting items which are being sold to raise funds, but they have also spent a huge amount of time contacting local businesses to obtain donations, and we have some fantastic prizes to be won. Our Chosen Charities of the Year do incredible work all year round, and our fundraising drive is a great example of how at HNC we help others and give back – whilst having fun in the process!”
