City College Norwich staff get on their bikes to raise money for children in need

Students helped raise more than £1,800 for a worthy cause with a host of sponsored fun.

City College Norwich’s fundraising efforts were joined by former Norwich City footballers Darren Huckerby and Darren Eadie to raise money for BBC Children in Need.

The total amount raised is expected to exceed £2,000, with the proceeds from a number of the college’s fundraising events still to be counted.

It has been a fun-filled week right across the college, with a wide range of Pudsey-inspired events being organised to raise money.

Events included Hotel School students Robert Ducker and Sam Masters’ Evening of Childishness in the Debut Restaurant, students and staff taking part in a sponsored static bike ride from Lands End to John O’Groats and a Students’ Union-organised Mad Hatter’s tea party.

Lots of students and staff also dressed up in fancy dress on Friday, including their Sixth Form Centre students who wore pyjamas on ‘dress down’ Friday and Applications Administrator Diane Horrex working in full snorkelling gear, complete with flippers, for the day.
