Reaseheath college cheque handover to St Luke's Cheshire Hospice

Caring students from Reaseheath College in Nantwich handed over £10,000 to St Luke’s Cheshire Hospice at their summer ball.

Money raised from RAG (Raising and Giving) activities was presented to Mark Porter, St Luke’s corporate and community fund raiser.

Mark said: “This is a fantastic amount of money which will help provide patient care in the local community.

“We are delighted that Reaseheath’s students chose us as their charity this year.”

Reaseheath College Student Association organised 35 events in RAG week alone.

These included a James Bond themed RAG Ball, a staff versus students football match, a raft race on the college lake, a tractor pull and a Three Peaks Challenge by students and staff from the construction department.

Student Association President Sam Norfolk, 20, said: “We had a fantastic team of Student Association members who worked really hard to put together activities which everyone could enjoy while raising money for a good cause.

“We chose St Luke’s because its services benefit the whole community and some were relevant to us, such as the bereavement counsellor for young people.”

Students and staff have raised a further £4,000 for other charities, including Macmillan Cancer Support, the Poppy Appeal, Red Nose Day and a number of animal charities.

In the past 26 years, students and staff have raised over £190,000 for local charities.
