On the 8th May at North Notts College (Worksop) Rod Glasgow, Reg Fox, and Tim Gladman were given a grade ‘0’ during the Hair Today – Gone Tomorrow Event to raise funds for PACT. Tim’s son Toby was diagnosed with Leukaemia in January 2009 with one of the many side effects of the intensified Chemo therapy is total hair loss, so Reg, Rod and Tim put themselves forward, both for emotional support and to raise money for charity. The event was attended by over 100 students and staff from across the college and we were able to raise £3500 on the day from donations, raffles, tombolas, cake and snack stands, sponsorship, balloons etc.
Since the event the total has reached £5500 from other events such as a Cycle challenge from Derby to Berwick-upon-Tweed, sponsored walks, the Three Peaks run, and the Sheffield ½ marathon. All monies raised will go to help PACT, Sheffield Children’s Hospital, CLIC Sargent, and Leukaemia Research for the ongoing research, prevention and care for children suffering childhood illnesses, or life limiting disease and the support of parents.

Learning development students enjoyed a barbecue with a Hawaiian theme at their end of term bash organised by staff in July. They also celebrated raising £851 for Child Leukaemia. Two students who were the main organisers of the fund raising events, Stephen Ogden and Gemma Pike, proudly presented Tim Gladman with the cheque.
