Five enterprising Foundation Studies students from Brockenhurst College raised £208 for Lymington’s Oakhaven Hospice by selling greeting cards.

The group took photographs locally, which they then turned into cards and sold to staff and students around the College.

All the cards sold and the money was officially handed over to Oakhaven Hospice as an outsized cheque on February 6th.

Students Lucy Pearson, Lloyd Pike, Simon Dunn, Harry Calder and Jess Evans from the Foundation Studies Vocational Media & Business course all participated.

The initiative was an enterprise project, which was part of their teaching, learning and assessment schedule.

The group decided unanimously that Oakhaven should be the beneficiary of their efforts.

Jo Cayla, Community and Corporate Fundraiser at Oakhaven Hospice, said: “I was so pleased to meet the students and very impressed with their cards.

“The money raised will help us continue to make every moment matter for those under our care,” she added.

Teacher Sally Abbott said: “The students were really good. They took amazing photographs, which they turned into professional-looking cards.

“They then demonstrated their considerable selling abilities, and are a credit to themselves and the College.”
