A group of six students; Rebecca Waddington, Gemma Green, Kirsty Lodge, Rachel Oliver, Leah Farrar and Claire Hamilton, have been raising money for charity.

Part of the second year of the Childhood Studies BA(Hons) course involves project management and team working, to help them ensure that they work effectively when they start their work placements in the new year.

The group of students chose to raise money for Bliss , a charity close to their hearts for some very personal reasons, but which also relates to children.

They have been raising funds so far by having a stall at the Huddersfield indoor market and at the train station and they have a signed football shirt on offer on Ebay. This will be followed by a signed football.

They have already raised several hundred pounds for the charity and will finish their fund raising before Christmas. As course leader Ceri Daniels says, ‘We are so proud of the students organising this fundraising project. They have put a lot of extra effort into raising awareness of the needs of very sick babies and raised a lot of money in a short space of time to help them; demonstrating some excellent organisational and project management skills to make it such a successful campaign’.

Here is a link to the feature in the Huddersfield Examiner about their tremendous efforts.
