PALMER’S College students celebrated the end of the academic year with a Fun Day, complete with inflatables, rodeo bull, music, BBQ and cheque presentation to the college’s charity of the year, Little Havens Children’s Hospice.
The event was organised by the Palmer’s Student Executive, a group of 12 students elected by their class mates at the start of the year to arrange events and raise money for charity.
Throughout the year the Student Exec have been raising money for Little Havens, a charity which cares for children and their families across Essex and London. Events have included Palmer’s Got Talent, cake sales, a fancy dress day and Tug of War tournament.
The Exec marked the end of the Fun Day by presenting Danielle Kiss, Community Fundraiser for Little Havens, with a cheque for an impressive £2000. She commented: “The Student Exec at Palmer’s have been a pleasure to support in their fundraising activities. Everyone at Little Havens is delighted that they choose to support the charity from the beginning of the academic year, and thrilled that they have managed to raise so much money for the hospice.”
“Their donation means that we are able to continue offering support to children and their families from across Essex who have a life limiting or life threatening illness.”
Mark Vinall, Principal, added: “To raise £2000 is a fantastic achievement and I applaud the Student Exec for their efforts and thank all of our students and staff for their generosity and encouragement throughout the year. Little Havens is a wonderful charity and I am proud that Palmer’s College has been able to support their valuable work.”
