Charity and social events

The Students' Union organises a variety of events during the year - from the Freshers’ Party in September/October to a Christmas Charity Event in December - and the Equality and Community Day and Leavers’ Fest, both usually held in June.

The SU plays a huge role in making the College a ‘supportive and caring community’ by getting students together, to have some fun and help raise funds for a range of worthwhile charities (including local, national and international causes).

In 2009 the College set up a new fundraising initiative, The Gambian School Appeal establishing a link with Wellingara Nursery School in the Gambia. Donations of clothes and computers are now made on an annual basis and the SU takes a lead role in raising funds to help with the on-going improvement of the school’s facilities and equipment.
