Heating and Ventilation students from Deeside College have recently undertaken a charity challenge with a difference.
To raise funds for the college’s chosen charity for the year PAPYRUS, the group constructed a mobile bath which was pushed from the College’s Northop Campus to their Deeside Campus. Along a 7 mile route, which saw the students travel through Northop and Flint before arriving back in Connah’s Quay, the group accepted kind donations from members of the public and also met with the Town Mayor of Flint.
PAPYRUS is a UK charity committed to prevention of young suicide and the emotional well-being and positive mental health of children, teenagers and young adults. The charity provides help to young people worried about themselves and others concerned about them. PAPYRUS also produces resources for young people, their parents, families, friends and carers, schools colleges and universities and all who work with young people.
With all funds counted the event generated over £450 for the charity. Speaking after completing the event, Heating and Ventilation student, John Hough, said: “The event was great fun and raised much needed funds for a worthy charity.”
Deeside College Heating and Ventilation Lecturer, Paul Guest who along with the students coordinated the event added: “The event was a huge success and I’d like to congratulate the students on their achievement and thank college staff and the local community for their generosity.
