A group of students from Cornwall and Devon have raised £445 for Children in Need.

As part of their Upskill group, Early Years students from Duchy College organised a raffle, mud run and duck race.

Over 30 of the students completed the mud run, which was an agility course usually carried out by the Military and Protective Services students.

Level 3 Early Years student, Ellie Eastley, said it was important to them that they help fundraise for charities, as the organisations chosen are “quite close and personal to us”.

“We fundraised for Children In Need as it is a well-known event which transforms the lives of disadvantaged children within the UK,” she added.

Fellow Level 3 Early Years student, Jade Paddon, said it was “great fun doing the mud run”.

“We dressed up as characters from nursery rhymes or story book and ran four miles through rivers and bogs,” she explained.

Team Lead for Early Years at Duchy College, Laetitia Mayne, said it was “fantastic” to see the students come together.

“They put in a lot of work to organise these events and raise a brilliant amount of money for such a worthwhile cause,” she added.
