Students successfully raise £200 for Sheffield Community Centre, St Wilfrid’s
We recently held our final non-business wear day of the academic year, where our students raised money for St Wilfrid’s Centre. The organisation is a community that supports vulnerable adults, by providing them with opportunities to improve their quality of life.
Some of our Post-16 students previously helped one of their clients earlier in the year, so the UTC was enthusiastic about being involved with the Centre again.
Dominic Maloney, Personal Development and Workshop Manager, explained to the students about the core values of St Wilfrid’s and how they could benefit the business. This developed their understanding of how the raised money would help individuals in society.
Assistant Principal and Teacher of Science, Kay Dulley, commented: “As always, the UTC students showed tremendous empathy and understanding with an appreciation of how fortunate they are to have access to opportunities, such as the those at the UTC.”
After their fantastic efforts and determination, the UTC successfully raised £200, which was proudly presented to Dominic at Wilfrid’s. Member of the school student council, Anna Poptoleva, Y10, handed over the cash. She was supported by her classmates Rowan Blunkett and Finlay Walker, as well as Jack Widdowson, Alfie Brown and Ben Maguire from Y11.
Kay Dulley said, “The UTC congratulates students and staff who contributed to the final amount. It reminds us that such a simple act can make a huge difference to people’s lives. Our students are looking forward to working with the Centre again in the upcoming months, as they are proud to have donated so much money for such a great cause.”
