From today (24th July) face cov­er­ings are manda­to­ry in lots of pub­lic set­tings (for those who aren’t exempt). Over the past few months stu­dents and staff from across the Col­lege have come togeth­er, using their skills and spare time to sew face cov­er­ings, and oth­er pro­tec­tive items which were donat­ed to front­line and key work­ers across Nottinghamshire!

Here are just a few of the amaz­ing vol­un­teer­ing efforts we’ve cov­ered over the past few months:

Together we are Nottingham's College

We are proud to sup­port our stu­dents and help them become the best they can be. In these last few months, we’ve col­lect­ed some amaz­ing sto­ries from across the col­lege community.

We’ve heard from ex-stu­dents who are proud­ly work­ing as nurs­es on the front­line sav­ing lives, and employ­ers we work with, who are trans­form­ing their busi­ness­es to sup­port local peo­ple through tough times. We’ve also seen stu­dents raise mon­ey, cre­ate com­mu­ni­ty trib­utes and lead their friends through men­tal health challenges.
