Students at Derby College Ilkeston Campus Fund Raise for Treetops Hospice
Mature students at Derby College’s Ilkeston campus have raised more than £600 for Treetops Hospice in Risley
The students ran a tombola stand at the College and organised a raffle for a signed Derby County football shirt.
The students are all on the Pre-Access programme at the Ilkeston campus which enables local people returning to education to gain the qualifications they need to ultimately progress onto Higher Education.
Derby College Pre Access Tutor Caroline Greatorex said: “Our adult learners, as well as working hard to complete their studies on the course, also give generously to a good cause. Most of the learners progress on to caring professions, so it is fitting that they fundraise to help those in need within our local society.”
Mary Rose, on behalf of Treetops Hospice, was grateful for the donation: “The Ilkeston Pre-Access Group raise money every year and we are thankful for it.”
