Record Total for JWC Rag Week
Students and staff at Derby College’s Joseph Wright Centre have raised a record £1,121 for three charities at their annual RAG week.
A wide range of competitions and activities were organised throughout the week and the money raised has been split between local charity Children First Derby, Cancer Research UK and Barnardo’s.
The tutor group which raised the most money - £117 – were presented with a trophy by Mrs Barbara Moakes, the widow of former Maths teacher John Moakes who was heavily involved in RAG Week before his sudden death a few years ago.
Head of the Joseph Wright Centre Stacey Adams said: “We are extremely proud of everyone’s efforts which has resulted in the largest amount ever being raised at RAG Week.
“The activities were an opportunity for students to learn new skills, make new friends and have a lot of fun.”
