Congratulations to Heart of Worcestershire College’s (HoW College) Level 3 Travel and Tourism students who have raised £970 for a number of local charities including: St Richard’s Hospice, Grace Kelly Foundation and Macmillan Cancer Support. 

As part of their course, Worcester students worked together to plan, organise and manage a number of exciting events including a disco, raffle, quiz and cake sale, donating all proceeds to the aforementioned charities.

Talking about the events, Level 3 Travel and Tourism student, Dominika Wilczynska said:

“Our group did their fundraiser for St Richard’s Hospice as part of our course’s events unit. We decided to do a karaoke night with a disco which has raised £458.20 for the charity. 

The event itself went absolutely amazingly, lots of our family and friends attended and supported us with the project, which was fantastic.” 

Talking about the skills the unit taught her, Dominika added: 

“We definitely learnt how to work as a team, we also learnt a lot about ourselves and what it takes to become a good leader.”  

Fundraiser for St Richard’s Hospice, Kelly Johns said:  

“Every penny the students have raised will go towards supporting the patients and their families at the Hospice.” 

Fellow Fundraiser, Claire James added:

  “Every year we look after over 3,300 patients and their loved ones within the hospice and out in the community, so the money is vital for supporting the work we do.”  

Commenting on the student’s hardwork, Travel and Tourism Lecturer, Alan Scott said:

“I am really proud of the group and all the time and effort they have dedicated to the unit.”
