Students named as charity’s top fundraisers

Business students from BTS have been presented with an award by Katharine House Hospice following a fundraising challenge.

The Kärcher Accumulator Challenge, which started in September, required students to raise as much money as they could using a £50 donation from Kärcher UK to get them started.

In total, the students’ fundraising activities resulted in over £1,200 being raised for Katharine House Hospice. This led to BTS being presented with an award for the most amount of money raised out of all groups who took part in the challenge this year, which they received at the awards ceremony on Monday 13 March.
