Students raise £20,000 for charity

The University of Wolverhampton Business School students rose to the challenge of raising funds for four charities as part of a module on their course.

The budding entrepreneurs planned and organised an array of activities including a masked ball, balloon release, charity auction, football tournaments and a fashion show.

The total raised by the group was £20,000 – beating last year’s total of £13,000. The money has been split between Compton Hospice, Severn Hospice Telford, Wolves Community Trust and the Steve Bull Foundation/Promise Dreams in Wolverhampton.

As part of the assessment for the Entrepreneurial Creativity and Innovation module, the students showcased their achievements at a special exhibition at Wolverhampton Racecourse.

Module Leader, Barry Whitehouse, from the University of Wolverhampton Business School, said: "The students have worked really hard to organise and deliver a whole range of fundraising events this year, and we are all delighted with the sum raised and their efforts. The Exhibition at Dunstall Park was a great success and a rewarding and enjoyable day for all concerned.”

The Entrepreneurial Creativity and Innovation core module is studied by second year students on the BA (Hons) Business Management programme at the University.
