As Christmas activities commenced at South Thames College with Christmas Jumper Day, the employability skills group led by Ashley Firth, Lecturer – Beauty Therapy, set up a stall to raise money for Save The Children. Students sold hand packed hot chocolate, cookies, sweets and gingerbread houses which were all made by the students. Students raised a fantastic £240 on the day – well done! Next time there will be handmade Christmas wreaths for sale and proceeds from this will also go to Save the Children.

In addition to this, Health and Social Care students and the Employability group are collecting Christmas gifts to give to children this year in conjunction with Ashley’s work with DONS Local Action Group, the Wimbledon charity who distribute to those in need. Thanks to all those who have supported their efforts and thanks to Ashley for co-ordinating it.
