Karen Robertson from Derby College with two of the winning fundraisers, Vafa Aliyera and Esmael Salout. The English and Maths students from the St James Centre raised £437.55 for the Trust and became the winners of the £200 prize donated by ESB (the English Speaking Board). The students promptly voted to donate their prize to CLIC Sargent, a local charity that supports young cancer sufferers and their families. The learners raised the money by selling homemade food, dresses and other items. Karen noted "the fundraising event has greatly helped to improve their skills and confidence".
Thanks to all who entered. We have a clear winner in Derby College raising a magnificent £437. 55p while the runners up were Walsall Adult and Community College with £385. We raised over £1800. Many thanks to all staff and students who so enthusiastically supported the Challenge and to the English Speaking Board who generously provided the prize money.
