STUDENTS at a Clydebank college campus have been praised for their fund-raising efforts towards 'life-changing' projects for sick kids.

Intermediate English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) students at the town's West College campus raised £500 through a bake sale that they will donate towards Glasgow Children's Hospital charity.

And, as the class handed over the cheque to the charity, they were joined by a representative from the group who thanked the learners for their efforts.

Kirsten Watson, CEO of Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity, said: “We are delighted with this incredible support from the ESOL students.

"This amazing fund-raising will help fund life-changing projects and equipment at Scotland’s busiest children’s hospital, making such a difference for young patients and their families.”

The bake sale was just one of a number of activities put on to raise much-needed cash for the children's charity and the students took part in their 'working with others’ unit. 

ESOL lecturer Sarah O’Brien commented: “Working in groups the students worked together to organise a bake sale where they raised a fantastic amount of £500.

"They all worked really well together to deliver the successful event.”

One student added: “We chose Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity because we wanted to act locally and we believe that children should have the chance of a healthy life without pain and suffering.

"‘To be honest, working in a group was difficult. We are all different but we did it. What counts is the effect, - we collected £500.”
