Students get creative with Children in Need

Events Boarders

Students at Trent relish any opportunity where they can help others less fortunate than themselves and as always, The Children in Need appeal will be benefitting from the wealth of fundraising events and activities organised by our boarding community, due to take place on Friday.

From the physically challenging 24 hour football match and the‘Fluorescent Pentathlon’ to the inventive ‘wheelbarrow campus taxi’ service, our students have been truly creative with their fundraising ideas this year.

There will be an array of cakes, sweets and drinks being sold throughout the day and if you fancy a taste of the states, pop into Bates House where they will be happy to serve you Coffee, waffles and hot dogs in their American Ranch style diner. Martin House will have a chocolate fountain on offer along with some delicious Crispy Kreme donuts. They are also raffling off some great prizes including a round of golf and a Thai massage.
