Brave volunteers at Solihull College & University Centre are set to abseil down the computing block at the Blossomfield Campus in Solihull on Tuesday 18th October.
To sign up to the event participants have been tasked with raising £50 in sponsorship which will be donated to Mad Hatter’s Children Charity. The charity works with children with special educational needs and disabilities across the Midlands, putting on events throughout the year to bring smiles to the faces of children.
The College will be working closely with the charity to organise the event which will include a Mad Hatters themed afternoon tea where staff and students at the College can make a donation in exchange for cakes and other sweet treats.
Solihull College & University Centre has previously worked with the Mad Hatters charity with their media students volunteering their time to film one of their events whilst the performing arts students donned the outfits of the charity to entertain the children at a recent event.
The staff and students are hoping to raise a substantial amount of money for the charity at the event next week; however, this is not the first daredevil charity event the College has hosted. Earlier this year 6 members of staff and students decided to take the leap of faith, quite literally, as they took part in a charity skydive. The skydive raised over £500 for a number of charities and was a great success with only a few nerves on show.
Staff and students are now excited for the event next week and hope to continue the fundraising for Mad Hatters Charity.
Donations can be made on the day to individuals taking part.
For more information speak with the student enrichment team at the College.
