A group of prospective galavanting globetrotters have raised over £500 for Pendleside Hospice as a group of travel and tourism students from Burnley College volunteered at a series of events with their tutor in the name of the care service.

The pupils, along with tutor Claire Hartley, held a cake sale and opened a sweet stall for Valentine’s Day at the college as well as carrying out a bag pack at Tesco in Burnley in recent months, all in the name of the hospice.

A grand total of £516.50 was raised through their efforts, with Joanne Moseley, who works in the fundraising department at Pendleside, saying: “The students have been a great help with our fundraising.”

Billy-Jean Horne, Burnley Tesco Community Champion, said he was ‘pleased to have the students in the store, chatting with their customers and helping them with their bag packing’, with Joanne going on to call the students’ efforts ‘a fantastic contribution’.
