Seevic College raises nearly £1,000 for Children in Need
Wednesday, 07 December 2016
Seevic College students have raised £948.74 for Children in Need with a host of fundraising events.
Students at the college in Runnymede Chase, Benfleet, wore onesies and some daring fundraisers even waxed their legs and shaved their heads to raise money for the good cause.
Andy Shepherd, Head of Pastoral Support, Prevent and Safeguarding Co-ordinator, said they were incredibly proud of the students.
He said: “At Seevic we are very supportive of a wide range of good causes and take part in fundraisers for Children in Need every year. This is the most we have ever raised for Children in Need and the students have really gone above and beyond to raise money for this appeal. Students shaved their heads, dressed up in onesies and even waxed their legs to back the fundraising efforts!
“We are so proud of our students and will continue to support good causes at Seevic.”
Thousands of people up and down the country took part in wild and whacky fundraising events to raise cash for the annual appeal.
So far, the total amount raised nationally stands at an eye-watering £46.6million. The money goes towards worthy causes and charities such as Hearing Dogs for Deaf Children, Whizz Kids and Home-Start.
