Winsford campus students raise money for The Big Lunch

Dedicated Foundation Learning students at Warrington & Vale Royal College’s Winsford campus have been busy raising money for The Big Lunch, the annual June event dedicated to celebrating and supporting the local community.

The students spent a sunny afternoon washing staff cars at the college campus, raising an impressive £50! Student Amie Quirk loved the event, stating: “I really enjoyed the car wash even though I got soaked, it was great fun and we raised so much money for a great cause.”

The students also had fun selling delicious waffles, served with ice cream and strawberries, raising a further £16. The students also got to enjoy this lovely treat after all their hard work, with student Ed Alcock saying: “We had the most scrumptious waffles ever!”

Another student, Cai Roberts, loved taking part in both events, saying: “I thoroughly enjoyed the car washing and slept well that evening. The ice-cream was a great reward.”

The money raised by the students will provide an afternoon tea for 25 local residents at Wharton Church in Winsford. Tutor Julie Hood, who coordinated the fundraising events, said: “I have been very impressed with the commitment from the students and the amount of money raised which will go to providing afternoon tea to 25 elderly residents as part of the Big Lunch campaign.”
