Seevic College students raise £1,600 for charity
Thursday, 09 January 2014
Students and staff at Seevic College raised over £1,600 for local and national good causes during a week of fundraising activities between 16-20 December.
Events taking place during the week included a talent show, themed fancy dress days, a strongman competition and a beauty salon. Brave lecturers at the College also faced their fears in a live show: I’m A Teacher Get Me Out of Here!
More than 200 students each paid £2 to watch the week’s headline talent show, Seevic’s Got Talent, raising over £400 in a single lunchtime. The competition was won by singer Nicole Nyarambi, 19, who thrilled the audience with her soulful version of Jessie J hit Mamma Knows Best.
Drummer Anthony Yates, 17, and rapper Maxim Sedlacek, 17, were runners up. Themed fancy dress days adding colour to the week included ‘Wear a Onesie’ Monday and ‘Where’s Wally’ Friday.
Enrichment Coordinator at Seevic College Joanne Williams organised the packed week of activities alongside the College’s Student Association.
Joanne said: “I was so proud of all the students and teachers that were actively involved in setting up or attending events throughout the week. Lots of fun was had whilst raising money for some fantastic local and international Charities.”
The College’s Charity Week supported the following local, national and international good causes: Shelter Box Philippines Appeal, Save the Children, Canvey Island Youth Project, Salvation Army and Toilet Twinning. Charities were chosen by students at the College, following an online vote.
The College’s next Open Evening takes place on Tuesday 4 February, 5.30 – 8pm.
