Children in Need 2018

In November, the students and staff of Selby College got involved with all things Pudsey, in aid of raising money for Children in Need. The fun-filled week was a huge success, comprising of a range of activities, from a treasure hunt to a cycling challenge to London Tower Bridge!  

The week started with Construction students taking on the 198 mile journey to London, together they completed 5 miles and set a high standard for the rest of the College to follow. Both Students and Staff shared the workload and put in the miles throughout the week, and by Friday afternoon Principal Phil Sayles had successfully completed the final mile!

Principal Phil Sayles says:

“The focus at the College is hard work and high achievement, but taking a little time out to help others and our communities is really good for us all, including our students, who have a keen sense of social responsibility.”

In between our ongoing mission to reach London, several other fundraising events took place within the College. On Tuesday, staff held a bake sale of cakes, biscuits and Pudsey goodies, much to the delight of all at College. 

Selby College also participated in the Annual Duck Race Sweepstake, a college Treasure Hunt and a ‘Dress down Day’. The Level 3 Childcare students wore onesies and combined their efforts to create a band of Pudsey Bears! A vision in yellow, they brightened an otherwise grey and gloomy November day!

Childcare Tutor Emma says:

‘I was truly impressed by the students’ dedication to such a worthy childcare charity. The students bought their own onesies, which helped raise funds and paid £1 to dress in them for the day. Such a great effort!’

Overall, a total of £435.20 was raised over the course of a week for Children in Need. Well done Selby College!
