Students on the Level 3 Childcare and Education course at Kidderminster College, raised an amazing amount of £1,900 for the Midlands Air Ambulance service, who saved the life of their friend and fellow student, Sophie Price, after she was involved in a serious car accident in March.
The students arranged a summer fayre at college to raise funds, and along with other fundraising events, and Farm Foods match funding the amount, an amazing total of £5,360 was raised.
Childcare tutors Sally Rowen and Carole Loverock, were very proud to represent the college to support Sophie at RAF Cosford, where she presented the cheque to the Air Ambulance for all the money raised in her name.
Before the accident, Sophie was studying the Level 3 Technical Diploma in Childcare and Education and she is hoping to return to college in September to complete the course.
The Midlands Air Ambulance charity is responsible for funding and operating three air ambulances serving the communities of six Midland’s counties. To continue this vital service, they need to raise in excess of £9 million each year and the charity is fortunate to count on the public for support.
