£4550 was raised this year for three charities chosen by the College. Money for Prospect Hospice, Wiltshire Air Ambulance and Alzheimer’s Society, was raised through fundraising activities and donations from staff throughout the year.
Christmas Toy Appeal:
Five large boxes of toys were collected from New College staff for the local Christmas Toy Appeal.
Swindon Women’s Refuge:
Two large boxes of Toiletries and Christmas gifts were delivered to Kingswood Doctors Surgery, all donations will go to the Swindon Women’s Refuge.
Contact the Elderly:
A party was arranged by Contact the Elderly and New College donated goodie bags!
The organisers said: “The party went well and our members loved the gift bags, they felt so spoilt. They all wanted to say a big thank you to you and your staff at New College for your kindness.”
Christmas Care in Swindon:
Many boxes of food items were also donated to the homeless shelter in Swindon.
Well done to staff at New College who organised and supported all of the fundraising activities this year – a fantastic effort from all!
