BTS Business Students Raise Money for Katherine House Hospice
The challenge was a sponsored bike ride of 103 miles – the distance from Bicester to Bournemouth. We were kindly lent the bikes by Bicester Leisure Centre, who supported the students in planning the events and ensured we were able to have the bikes for the day. The students did excellently, each taking it in turns to keep the bikes turning and cheering each other on, here’s a picture of them in action…
BTS Business Students Raising Awareness
Students are being encouraged to donate dried, or canned food, such as pasta, soups and biscuits, and non-edible items such as detergent, shower gel, baby wipes and deodorants during the month of December to donate to those in need in Bicester over the Christmas period. The students have done excellently already with their donations and are gaining Epraise points for their community spirit!
Thanks to all that have donated already, we are still welcoming donations to help this fantastic cause! #FoodBankAdvent
