Red Nose Day Charity Football Tournament

To celebrate and raise funds for Red Nose Day, students across the College took part in a 5-a-side charity football tournament, raising a fantastic £148.57!

A total of 14 student teams entered the tournament, battling it out in for a chance to take part in the final match. Teams ‘Ethnicity FC’ and ‘Walton Warriors’ were victorious in the qualifying matches, but it was Walton Warriors who were crowned the winners.

Winning Team Walton Warriors with Principal Virginia Barrett, Vice Principal Lawrence Magee, Learner Services Manager Nicky Branson, Learner Services Officers Clare Parrack and Roxy Mills, College Health and Wellbeing Adviser Sally Marlow, and Lee Crocker from Phoenix Sporting Goods.

The charity match was organised by Learner Services Officers Clare Parrack and Roxy Mills, and inflatable football goals were donated to the College by Phoenix Sporting Goods.

Students appeared to really enjoy the day and we are so pleased with the outcome and money raised for Red Nose Day. Thank you to everyone who got involved, from the teams, to the referees and staff who volunteered their time to help run this event.”
