As part of their qualification, this week our SEND & Transition students have been tasked to plan and organise a few fundraising activities for Red Nose Day, Comic Relief. It is a great opportunity for the students to make a positive contribution to the community and raise a smile or two. Our SEND Lecturer & Tutor, Suzanne Rodrigues, tells us more…
The last 12 months have been incredibly tough for all of us, but we’re so proud of how we have all managed. We could do with a laugh right now, so we have decided to get involved in raising funds for Comic Relief. Two student bubbles are taking part in this project whilst they continue to learn remotely. Both groups have worked extremely hard to organise these events and I have found that they have all enjoyed the learning process.
Bubble 6 (SEND) are holding a 1 hour Sponsored Silence in fancy dress with their tutor on 15 March. This group are also hosting a Virtual Quiz for their fellow students & the department staff on 16th March. The money raised from these events will go to Comic Relief – Donate
Bubble 11 (Transition) are holding a 24hr Gameathon on the 19th of March. They have demonstrated great teamwork & independence throughout. The money raised from this event will go to the RSPCA Due to lockdown and Covid restrictions the RSCPA have been financially struggling and they mainly rely on donations – Donate | Livestream
However much or little we raise, we’ll be helping change lives in the UK and across the world. Here is some information about Red Nose Day and why we think it is a good charity to do something for.

Where the money goes
As well as taking the opportunity to be part of something positive, we’ll be using Red Nose Day as a learning opportunity. We’ll explore the issues facing young people across the world, and how the money we raise can help.
We would like to ask you to support and any donations you make would be greatly appreciated.
