Students at Coleg Cambria are getting ready to ‘Go Green’ and raise vital funds for cancer support.
On February 29th Coleg Cambria will be Going Green in aid of the college’s chosen charity for the year Macmillan Cancer Support.
The leap day will see all college sites use the extra day to hold as many different activities as possible to raise money for charity.
Students from the Wrexham sites have been invited to take their activities into the town centre, but on all sites there will be a frenzy of fundraising activities, and all staff and learners are getting prepared for a really special day.
Some of the activities organised for this extra day includes cycling marathon, sale of ornamental garden moulds and house number plates, bag packing, electric maize puzzles, tug of war, silly selfies, tortoise race, flash mob, treasure hunt, cake stall, raffle and much more.
Karen Senior, Student Service Manager at Coleg Cambria said: “We are really looking forward to this event, and staff and students are busy preparing for a day full of activities to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.”
Macmillan Cancer Support Fundraising Manager Eleri Brady added: “This is a fantastic way for people to use the extra day and raise money. Macmillan can only fund services to support people affected by cancer thanks to the generosity of the public.”
