Solihull College students change lives

Students at Solihull College have made a difference to the lives of other young people after raising £5,200.36 for Teenage Cancer Trust.

The students are working towards the BTEC Extended Diploma in Business or Peter Jones Enterprise Academy (PJEA) Diploma in Enterprise and Entrepreneurship.

The Trust is the annual charity of LaSer UK, a Solihull-based company that works in collaboration with the college’s Business School.

Richard Smithies, corporate social responsibility champion at LaSer UK, said: “The amount of money is absolutely fantastic and we are proud to have worked with the students, making a difference to the lives of young people with cancer.”

From running a half marathon and washing cars to hosting a charity auction and Greek-themed quiz night, the students organised a range of fundraising activities to encourage the community to donate.
