Students at Fairfield Farm College, with the support of staff (and even some animals) raised over £200 on World Down Syndrome Day last month by wearing and selling odd socks.
The college reports, “Students have been working hard to sell special odd socks to raise money for the Swindon and Wiltshire Down Syndrome WorkFit employment programme.
“WorkFit is the Down’s Syndrome Association’s employment programme which brings together employers and job-seekers who have Down’s syndrome.
“Students managed to raise an amazing £228 through their sock selling endeavours.”
Jessica, the Student Council Events Organiser said, “It was great fun, and everyone is pleased with the money we raised.”
