College elves raise money for charity

16 December 2020

Colleges across West Sussex were overrun with elves – and all in the name of charity.

Staff and students at Brinsbury College dressed as elves earlier this month in support of Elf Day, a festive themed fundraising event for Alzheimer’s Society, the Chichester College Group’s charity of the year.

They joined colleagues and classmates holding Elf Days across all five Chichester College Group’s colleges – including Chichester, Crawley, Haywards Heath and Worthing – to raise nearly £1,500 across the group.

Lisa Humphries, Director of Student Services and Pastoral Support for the Chichester College Group, said: “Everyone out-elved themselves in support of Alzheimer’s Support.

“We were overwhelmed by the support everyone gave us, raising an incredible amount to kick-off our fundraising efforts for our chosen charity of the year.

“The elves really were out in force on all campuses, from making treats to sell to walking many memory miles and attending virtual workshops to find out more about dementia.

“The support our students and staff gave us was phenomenal, especially our student experience team who organised events at all of our colleges.”

The Chichester College Group will be fundraising for Alzheimer’s Society throughout the remainder of the academic year, with more events planned over the coming months.
