Some of our High Needs students face profound challenges in everyday life that require specialist equipment and highly trained support staff. This type of equipment is very expensive, and this is where dedicated campaigns and fundraising events can prove very effective ways of raising funds.
Local businessman and Portland College supporter, Richard Fuller of County Battery has been raising money for the college by taking donations in exchange for chocolates. The majority of the donations have come from members of local business network meeting, Mansfield & Ashfield 2020 who hold their monthly breakfast meetings here in the college function suite.
The monies raised have reached a substantial amount and the learners, who have directly benefited from the donation, created this video to showcase where the money has been spent and also to express their thanks.
