Students at the West Suffolk College, in Bury St Edmunds, have been shaving their heads, holding a quiz night, a sponsored skeleton, sponsored walk and 24-hour non-stop sport which added up to £4,500 being raised for the GeeWizz charity to purchase laptops for the town’s Priory School.
The students in business, law, sport, tourism and science took on the tasks at the start of Global Enterprise Week and used their entrepreneurial skills to come up with their own ways of raising the cash.
One group of Level 3 business students raised £2,000.
Josh Nuttall, who helped organise the quiz night and raffle said: “It was a good experience to plan it and to work as a group.”
And Georgia Kembery said she spent a week bag packing at Marks and Spencer.
