English Language students who held a bring and buy sale were among those who have helped Uxbridge College raise a total of around £3,000 in the last academic year 2009-10.

A sale in aid of the Haiti children's appeal and a sponsored run for Sport Relief were among recent fundraisers at Uxbridge College which have netted almost £3,000 since September.

Contributions to this total include:

* £1,200 for the UNICEF Haiti Appeal for earthquake survivors. This included £800 from the School of English Language Teaching, which held a bring and buy sale on 9 March and collected cash donations. Students on the Entry to Further Studies course decided to support the appeal after learning about the impact of volcanoes and earthquakes during geography lessons. The remaining £400 included £120 raised by Early Years students.

* £600 for Sport Relief, which helps disadvantaged people in the UK and abroad. Runners joined the national Sport Relief Mile on 19 March at Hillingdon Athletics Stadium, use of which was given free by management company Fusion. The run was organized by students taking the BTEC First Diploma in Sport who have to help organise an event to pass their course.

* £150 for The Royal British Legion's Poppy Appeal in November 2009.

* £1,000 for BBC Children in Need in November 2009.

An event organized in partnership with Uxbridge College at the Hayes Community Campus also raised £500 for CLIC Sargent, a charity which supports children with cancer. A series of coffee mornings, a raffle and a pamper night were held, and Uxbridge College donated the price paid by customers of their beauty treatments during the fundraising week in March.

Laraine Smith, Principal of Uxbridge College, said: "It's terrific to see students and staff doing so much to support the vital work of these charities. Our students come from so many different backgrounds that it is not surprising they choose to help others in so many ways. It has also been great fun for everyone involved - which is vital for people who are working so hard the rest of the time!"
