Congratulations to our Supported Learning students who as part of their Life Skills course have raised more than £400 for SEWA Day, a local homelessness charity which supports Nottingham families and vulnerable people with foodbanks and a community kitchen.

Based at our Stapleford campus, this group of 13 students, all of whom are studying a pre-entry level course, have been busy fundraising through a range of activities and events, from festive fundraisers towards the end of last year to running their very own campus snack shop.

Laura Galley - SLDD Lecturer

We are so proud of our students for all their hard work and commitment to this social action project. Not only have they raised money for a great cause, they have also gained a sense of purpose and an awareness around community support and helping those in need. They have gained confidence and people skills along the way and have developed their functional maths and English knowledge too. It’s been great to be part of.

The money we have raised will help children who don’t have much. I want to keep helping this charity and making people happy.

I feel really proud of what we’ve achieved. It feels good to help people. 

Jasmina Rhodes — Supported Learning student

We are a charitable organisation run completely by volunteers, so we rely heavily on the support of the public. Meeting the students today and hearing all about their fundraising efforts has been extremely heart-warming. I would like to say a big thank you to all the staff and students at Nottingham College for their kind support. This money will make a real difference to the local community!
