Supported Learning students raise over £270 for Maggie's


Students on the Independent Living Skills and Skills for Life courses within the College's Faculty of Supported Learning have raised £272.75 for Maggie's Lanarkshire from a successful fundraising enterprise.

Part of the Volunteering and Upcycling classes within the course, the students decide to make products to sell in order to raise funds for the Airdrie-based charity, which offers the best possible support free to anyone with cancer and their families.

The class sold Christmas Cards, handmade gift bags, wrapping paper, gift boxes and biscuits by going around classrooms in the College's Motherwell Campus throughout February. 

Lecturer Michelle McMillan said: "The students decided they wanted to put their skills to good use for a charity that is well loved in the local community. They worked very hard in planning and selling the products and are very proud of the amount raised. 

"Thanks to all staff and students who supported our cause and helped us raise this fantastic amount."

The students presented the cheque to Heather McArthur and Dianne Calgie from Maggie’s Lanarkshire, who congratulated the students on their hard work and said they were delighted with the amount raised.
