Student Fundraiser BBQ Donates £900 to Ukraine Appeal
8 July 2022
Generous students and staff from Dumfries and Galloway College have raised £900 for the Ukraine Humanitarian appeal.
The cash was raised at a barbecue and a raffle held at the college’s Dumfries campus.
Hospitality staff at the college handled the food preparation while students took donations and ran the raffle, which included prizes such as a beauty hamper and restaurant vouchers.
Sponsored by MKM Building Supplies, the event was organised by students and was very well attended.
A cheque for the money raised was presented to the appeal by students, Principal Joanna Campbell, and a representative of MKM Building Supplies.
Dumfries and Galloway College is incredibly proud of its staff and students for the hard work and generous spirit they have shown and sends its thanks to its valued partners at MKM Building Supplies for their support in making this event such a success.
Principal Joanna Campbell said:
“Our college community has a long and well-deserved reputation for generosity and helping those in need, and this latest event shows why that is the case.”
“£900 is a tremendous amount of money to raise in one event and everyone involved, staff, students, and our partners at MKM Building Supplies, should be rightly proud of themselves.”
“Being part of the cheque presentation was a personal highlight for me and the thanks we received on that day will stay with me forever.”
