The Wales Air Ambulance Service is benefiting from the helping hands of students and staff at Coleg Cambria. The college has raised more than £6,500 for the air ambulance charity through its annual Christmas festivities. The festivities were held across three of the college’s sites – Llysfasi, Northop, and Wrexham – where students and visitors alike participated in festive activities while raising funds for the charity.
Craft Fairs Yielded Vital Funds for Air Ambulance Service
The college’s Yale site also held a Christmas Craft Fair, where budding entrepreneurs had the opportunity to showcase their produce. The fair was beneficial to all parties involved as the entrepreneurs could test trade their products and discover invaluable marketing techniques in the process.
The Northop Campus too played host to a Craft Fair, where 30 stalls were set up to sell crafts, gifts, and refreshments. For younger visitors, face painting activities and animal centre visits were the highlights of the event. During the animal centre tour, visitors were able to see reptiles and monkeys housed at the college.
Students and Visitors Enjoyed the Entertainment at the Llysfasi Site
Residents, local schools, and community groups participated in the fundraising event for Wales Air Ambulance at the college’s Llysfasi campus. Visitors had the chance to watch a live nativity play that featured college students. The event also involved Christmas carols to add an overall festive theme to the fair.
The event managed to bring the college and the local community together to contribute for a good cause while having some good-hearted fun. With the help of these festive activities, the students and staff at Coleg Cambria managed to raise thousands for the air ambulance service. At the same time, this event was an excellent opportunity for learning and experience for the students.
