Milton Keynes college students raise funds and awareness for Age UK Milton Keynes

    MK College business students have collaborated with one another in order to raise funds and awareness for Age UK Milton Keynes.

    In a heartwarming collaboration that showcases the power of community and innovation, students from the Business Department at MK College's Bletchley campus have made a remarkable impact by raising funds and awareness for Age UK Milton Keynes.

    Age UK Milton Keynes is committed to working with and for older people to make a real and positive difference that contributes to their wellbeing and quality of life. Since June 1st, 2010, when it joined the Age UK partnership formed from the merger of Age Concern and Help the Aged, Age UK Milton Keynes has continued to uphold its core values and objectives, striving to help older people make the most of life.

    Demonstrating resourcefulness and a strong entrepreneurial spirit, the students organised a cake sale and scavenger hunt, starting with no initial funds. Their efforts culminated in a successful event that not only raised £53 but also inspired additional donations.

    Following the event, generous supporters from both MK College and Age UK Milton Keynes matched the amount, doubling the total funds raised to £110.

    Simon Tuck, Event and Community Fundraiser at Age UK Milton Keynes said, "We are incredibly proud of the students from MK College. Their hard work and innovative spirit have not only raised vital funds but also heightened awareness of the challenges faced by older people in our community.”

    Dan Purdy, Deputy Head of School: Digital and Business at MK College, praised the students' efforts, saying, "This project exemplifies the entrepreneurial and community-focused mindset we strive to instil in our students. Their ability to create an event from scratch and achieve such positive outcomes is truly commendable."
