A group of students were given £20 as a start-up investment and were tasked to see how much money they could raise from that £20. Having to get their business minds on the task students came up with various fundraising ideas including holding a bake sale, selling milk shakes and also a mega raffle.
The students were encouraged to work together, utilising each other’s skills and creativity and their great team efforts enabled them to reach their total of over £300.
Zoe Partridge, Community Fundraiser for CHSW was delighted to collect the donation on behalf of the charity.
The students at Duchy College did absolutely brilliantly as part of the £20 Challenge, they were creative and raised a fantastic amount which will help us to continue supporting local children and families at our hospices.
The £20 Challenge is available for schools, colleges and university students to take part in to help raise vital funds for CHSW which needs £3 million a year to run its children’s hospice in St Austell; Little Harbour. The challenge is ideal for inspiring students to use their entrepreneurial skills and creativity alongside building up skills in team work, managing money, business and fundraising.
