WestKing Business students organise fundraiser to support local charities

Level 3 Business Students at WestKing host a fundraiser to raise money for three local charitable organisations. 

Students from Westminster Kingsway College (WestKing) hosted a special event on 30 April at the college’s King’s Cross Centre to raise funds for three local charities.

The students, who are studying for the Business Enterprise and Innovation – Level 3 Extended Diploma, planned, promoted and carried out a range of fundraising activities to support Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity, Young Camden Foundation, and Let’s Get Talking

The three local charities have particular relevance to young people.

  • Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity supports young people and their families, funds research into children’s health, provides life-saving medical equipment and contributes to the rebuilding and refurbishing of the hospital site
  • Young Camden Foundation supports young people by building partnerships which provide communities with important resources and funding
  • Let’s Get Talking provides education for young people about health and crime, with a particular focus on drug awareness and knife crime

The students organised stalls selling delicious treats including cakes and sweets and popular accessories such as sunglasses and phone cases. Visitors to the fundraising event were able to change their look and decorate themselves with temporary tattoos and eyelashes. For those looking to participate in competitive activities, there was also the opportunity to take part in basketball games and darts matches.

The fundraising event organised by WestKing’s Business students raised over £300 and was divided between the three local charities.

Congratulations to the Level 3 Business Students on supporting local charities through your fundraising activities!
