Families will be spoiled for choice when it comes to activities this weekend thanks to a Charity Spring Fair fundraising event.
Visitors will have the chance to get up close to live animals and birds, tackle a challenging blindfold obstacle course, design their own hedgehog house, try their hand at making pizza and partake in a wide range of crafts and games all in the name of charity.
Students from Cornwall College Newquay have been busy organising a Charity Spring Fair taking place on Saturday 18th March between 10am and 3pm, and Programme Manager at the College, Brender Wilmot, explained it has been organised as part of their Personal and Employability Skills Development module.
“All first year foundation degree students have been tasked with organising an activity that will either raise funds for, or awareness of, their chosen charity,” she explained.
“The charities that have been chosen are either animal-, marine- or surf-related and the students are hoping for lots of visitors.”
The aim of the Charity Spring Fair, which is held on the Cornwall College Newquay campus located behind Newquay Zoo, is to get the students working together as teams and to put on an event that will make a real difference to the charities they are supporting.
As well as event management skills, the students have also learnt more about leadership, organisation, marketing and general business.
“And while the students get a great opportunity to learn these new and valuable skills, families benefit from a fantastic day out with plenty to see and do.,” Brender added.
