Cumbernauld College students raise £270 for Breast Cancer Care

CUMBERNAULD College added a splash of colour to its campus when it hosted a series of ‘pink parties’ to help raise money for a cancer charity.


Students on the NC Health Care and NQ Health and Social Care courses raised £269.62 for Breast Cancer Care during the month of October.


Three pink parties were held which saw students make a donation to dress in pink for the day.


The dining area of the building was transformed into a pink wonderland and the students hosted raffles, lucky dips and games during the fun events.


The catering students, from the New College Learning Programme, also supported the cause by baking 100 pinks cupcakes which were on sale during the parties.


Jan O’Hara from Kildrum is on the NQ Health and Social Care student at Cumbernauld College. She said: “Everyone was really keen to raise money for Breast Cancer Care and the pink parties sounded like great fun.


“We all really enjoyed planning and organising the events and the feedback from all the students was really positive. Being able to raise almost £270 is such an achievement and it’s going to such a great cause.”


College lecturer Jackie Hunter said: “The pink parties were a great success and the students are thrilled at the amount of money they were able to raise.


“Everyone at the college really got into the spirit of the occasions and the students are already talking about next year’s event and how we can make it bigger and better.”
