Level 2 Health and Social Care students at Yale College have raised £170.00 for the British Heart Foundation by ‘Rocking up in Red’.
As part of their Health Zone Ambassador role, the students produced health information materials on diet and nutrition which will be displayed in Yale College’s Health Zone in their Learning Resource Centre.
The charity day allowed Yale College students to enjoy wearing red for the day when they gave £2 to the British Heart Foundation. Keen to raise more funds for the charity, the group dressed in red and sold cakes and red heart badges in the College’s Learning Resource Centre Health Zone and its Food Court; as well as receiving additional donations from staff and students at the College.
“The students worked hard for The British Heart Foundation,” said Janet Suckley, LRC Assistant who looks after the Health Zone in Yale’s Resource Centre and liaised closely with the group on the idea to raise money for the charity.
Sion Edwards, Fundraising Volunteer Manager for British Heart Foundation North Wales visited Yale College this week to receive the cheque from level 2 Health and Social Care students and their tutor Sue Jones.
