It’s that time of the year where our Business students participate in The Big Idea Challenge, an enterprise initiative by London Metropolitan University. Over the course of a few months, students across the UK get involved and compete in multiple stages across the competition with the aim to progress and build on their ideas.
Commencing on 19th January and ending on 30th April, the challenge was for our students and staff to walk 101 miles each over 101 days and raise money for the NHS. The project also aimed to improve morale amongst College members and to help everyone keep fit and healthy during the national lockdown.
Across the recent weeks, students and staff have been working hard to revitalise our onsite allotment to be able to put it to good use. Students got stuck in by weeding, cutting the grass, painting beds as well as generally cleaning and tidying the area.

Since 19th January, our students and staff have been walking every day with a number of intentions including: feeling united as a college whilst remote working; staying physically fit & mentally healthy during lockdown; and raising money for the NHS. We are now on the home stretch with our end date of 30th April in sight.
