Easton and Otley College puts silent might behind charity during festive fayre and carol service
13 December 2018
Easton and Otley College put their silent might behind two charity campaigns during a Christmas fayre and carol service this week.
During the fair, various activities took place to support two local benevolent organisations.
Staff and students collected produce for the food bank in Norwich.
Elsewhere, animal students sold cakes and organised goat selfies that raised money for the Norfolk branch of CLIC Sargent, the college’s charity of choice for 2018/19.
Emma Taylor is a fundraiser for the Norfolk and Suffolk branches of CLIC Sargent. She said, “The college has been involved in the Christmas fayre and I know they are looking to come up with lots more fundraising ideas. We are currently supporting 78 families in Norfolk alone and we support children and young people with cancer all the way through their journey – financially, practically and emotionally.”
“It was fantastic and we were over the moon when we found out that Easton and Otley was supporting us this year,” she added.
Student services manager at the Norfolk campus of the college, Bethany Norman, said, “This annual occasion helps shine a light on some important causes. It’s essential that staff and students think of others – not just at Christmas – but all year round – therefore we were happy to do our bit and we are always delighted to support the local community as often as we can.”
