Rutland County College students host fundraising business meeting

Have your say

More than £270 was raised at a network business meeting organised by college students.

Seven BTEC business students from Rutland County College held the event on behalf of the Rutland and Stamford Business Network as part of their course on Friday last week.

The students were given a budget for the event and money raised from entrance fees was donated to local cause Anna’s Hope, a charity which offers support to children and young people who have been diagnosed with brain tumours.

A cheque was presented to charity co-founder Rob Hughes.

Student Hollie Macmenemey, who was in charge of administration for the meeting, said: “The event ran very smoothly and went very well. Everyone seemed to enjoy it.

“We were very happy to have raised that much money for the charity.”
