    CHARITABLE COLLEGE TUTOR THANKS STUDENTS FOR ENTERPRISE

    December 7th, 2012

    LOUGHBOROGUH COLLEGE  tutor Sally Anderson has her own students to thank for ensuring she can now register a cause very close to her heart as an official charity.

     Sally and husband Peter launched GEMS in June 2012 to raise money to buy much needed equipment for the chemotherapy suite at Leicester Royal Infirmary. Each letter represents the first name of a dear friend whom she has supported through their cancer treatment in recent years.

     Every would-be charity has to raise £5,000 in its first year to be able to register and Sally was delighted when two much-appreciated efforts from students took GEMS through that legal barrier with seven months to spare.

     Hospitality students held a cake sale as part of the Be Your Own Boss Enterprise project and BTEC travel and tourism student Karishma Rana held her own individual sale.

     “I’m really grateful to all the students involved and others in the College who have taken GEMS on board. I am planning to put it forward for consideration as the College charity this year,” she said.

     In addition, Meg Cook, one of the inspirations behind GEMS and a former long serving member of the hospitality team, has been another to contribute, organising a children’s disco in Coalville.
