Students from Barnet and Southgate College's Health, Education and Social Care department successfully completed a five mile sponsored charity walk from the Wood St Campus in Barnet to Hadley Woods
The sponsored walk was arranged to help raise vital funds for Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice, which is based in Barnet. The charity is an innovative children's hospice service, providing practical and emotional support to life-limited and life-threatened children and their families. The hospice seeks to serve around 350 children and their families living within the communities of Enfield, Barnet, Camden, Haringey and Islington, they are currently raising funds to try and build their own premises and continue with their community outreach work.
Over sixty College students and staff took part in the walk earlier this year and raised an amazing £1000.00 for the charity. On Friday, David Byrne, Principal of the College, officially presented the amount as a giant cheque to Sarah Austin from Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice, alongside students from Barnet and Southgate College studying Childcare level 2 and level 3 and Health and Social Care level 3.
Barnet and Southgate College Principal David Byrne said:
“Barnet and Southgate College, Health and Social Care students and staff regularly support local community services and everyone involved worked incredibly hard to raise £1,000 for Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice, we hope that the amount raised helps towards the vision of building their own premises and continuing their great work.”
