Students raise funds for Maxi’s Mates

Maxi’s Mates, a local rescue and rehoming centre for dogs, recently shared a post on social media asking for donations, as they were almost at capacity.

One of our students and dog lover, Katie Earl, saw the post and decided she wanted to do something to help, so set about raising awareness of the situation.


She worked with Emma, the college Enrichment Coordinator, to promote the cause amongst her peers, the teachers and wider student body and then began the task of raising goods and funds.

Katie, her friends and Emma even arranged for a little visit from Pixie, who came into college to meet the students and also went to say hello to the nursery children.






With the support from staff and students, everyone in the college came together in donating food, beds, bedding, towels and toys as well as collectively raising £83.81 in cash, which was gratefully received by Maxi’s Mates.

Big thanks to Katie for all your hard work in organising this fundraiser and to all that got involved in this worthy charity.
