Students raise £697 for Marie Curie

Tameside College’s Health and Social Development and Hair and Beauty students spent their spare time raising a whopping £697 for the Marie Curie Daffodil appeal.

Five students from the College went into Ashton Town Centre to raise money in aid of Cancer Care. The charity which the students raised the funds for provides care for terminally ill patients. Marie Curie Cancer Care last year alone cared for almost 40,000 patients and their families, which is why it is vital people support the charity by fundraising.

The students that were involved were, Leigh Vickers, Tammy Walton, Dylan Howard, Katrina Thomas and Abbie Stones. This is an annual event, whereby students from the College raise money for Marie Curie, along with other local charities too.

Tammy Walton said; “We are delighted with the amount of money that we raised for this worthy cause.”

Alison, Co-ordinator for Marie Curie Daffodil fundraising said; “Many thanks to tutors, Susan and Hayley and an even bigger thank you to the students who helped on Saturday, they did really well and as a whole we collected £2040.44. This is the most we have ever raised in Ashton.”
