Students raise funds for Dacorum Community Trust

Our students have raised funds for the Dacorum Community Trust (DCT), a charity dedicated to helping those most in need within the Dacorum area. On top of generating money, the work carried out has helped promote the charity and raise public awareness.

Health and Social Care student’s hosted a bake sale to raise money at our Hemel Hempstead campus totalling £90. They also received donations after helping Tesco’s customers pack their shopping whilst Business students organised a charity car wash.

Tony Williams, Chairman of the charity, said: "I want to thank the students for their hard work and enthusiasm in raising funds for the charity. We are very grateful and the students should be proud that through this volunteering initiative they are helping disadvantaged people in the Dacorum area."

Employability Coordinator, William Hill, said: “This year GAP has teamed up with Dacorum Community Trust and students at Hemel Hempstead have been running fundraising projects for the charity. It has been great to see the enthusiasm from the students to promote the locally based charity in our community. They have learnt the challenges and rewards of running events and projects as well as the value of volunteering. We look forward to working with DCT next year and raising more valuable funds for their important work.”

Thanks to the student’s hard work, over £130 was raised which will make a real difference. Hopefully this is the beginning of a long lasting and productive relationship between the Dacorum Community Trust and West Herts College.
