SOUTH Cheshire College public services students raised the bar by staging a fundraising double-header to support Cancer Research.

The Foundation degree public and community services first year group held a charity leg wax and organised a ‘Crossbar Challenge’ on the same day to raise over £100 for the national charity.

Students across the college supported both fundraising initiatives which took place at the college’s Crewe campus.

Male public services students put themselves in the firing line for the charity leg wax which was delivered by college beauty therapy students.

Meanwhile, students from different college courses were able to pay £1 to have a go at the Crossbar Challenge on the College’s MUGA (Multi Use Games Area) facility.

The Challenge was a replica of the one which appears on the popular Sky TV Soccer AM football show every Saturday morning.

Contestants have a go at kicking a ball from the half way line and have to hit the crossbar of the goal full-on to win a prize.

Cancer Research is the UK’s leading cancer charity and helps to fund different kinds of research into beating cancer.

Gill Ward, public services course team leader, said: “Students enjoyed hosting both activities for an excellent national cause.

“The events attracted interest from staff and students across the College and gave the group valuable experience of organising fundraising activities as part of their Public Services course.”
