Construction students score £350 for Cash for Kids


Built Environment students from New College Lanarkshire have hosted a charity football match in aid of Cash for Kids.

Students of HNC and NC Built Environment courses from the Motherwell Campus competed in the seven-a-side match at Ravenscraig Regional Sports Facility.

The fundraising game generated £350 for the children’s charity, which is associated with Radio Clyde and raises money for sick and underprivileged children.

The event was organised by the students in conjunction with their lecturer, Ian Hill.

Ian said: “Thanks to the support of Jim Griffin, Curriculum and Quality Leader, the hall was secured with the help of Dave Marrable, Assistant General Manager of Ravenscraig.

“The idea came about after Sam Fisher, one of the HNC students, suggested that they organise a match as a sponsored event in aid of Cash for Kids.

“The game brought the two Built Environment classes together for the first time, and the students now plan to organise future games in semester two.”

Jim Griffin added: “I’m delighted that the event was so successful and I’d like to congratulate all the students involved in fundraising for such a worthy cause.”
