Student Raises £350 for Charity

A generous student at Solihull Sixth Form College has raised £350 for the Childhood Tumour Trust thanks to fundraising at home and at College.

Kate Leah is a first year student at the College, studying BTEC Health & Social. She chose the Childhood Tumour Trust, which is a charity close to her heart and that of her family, as it supports her brother who has Neurofibromatosis type 1 (more commonly known as NF1), which is a genetic condition that causes tumours to grow along nerves.

Kate commented:

“I help my mum with her charity mornings for the Childhood Tumour Trust. After seeing her coffee morning I wanted to do something as well, so I organised a bake sale and raffle at College. I’m happy with how much money I’ve been able to raise for this charity.”

The raffle prizes include chocolate hampers, a pizza meal, a Nandos voucher, a Touchwood voucher, a nail gel treatment, and many more, all donated by local retailers. Kate did an enormous amount of campaigning to collect these prizes and gave a presentation to Student Health Ambassadors at College about NF1 and the work of this charity.
