College students get into the Christmas spirit with charity fun
3:30pm Friday 20th December 2013 in News
STUDENTS at Darlington’s Queen Elizabeth Sixth Form College have been entering into the spirit of Christmas while also raising money for charity.
Activities have ranged from the traditional carol concert to a Christmas physics lecture, to festive futsal in the sports hall.
One of the most popular events was Christmas Jumper Day when students and staffed donned their festive tops to raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust.
Donations for the charity were generously given and, with the selling of candy canes, £400 was raised for the Trust.
CENTRE CLOSED: Pupil referral unit Rise Carr College, previously known as the Phoenix Centre, in Eldon Street, Darlington, was closed on Friday (December 20), because of a fault with the fire alarm.
ROAD WORKS: Two-way traffic signals will be in place in Carmel Road South on Monday (December 23), to enable street light repairs works to be carried out by Darlington Borough Council.
TREE FESTIVAL: The last in a series of Christmas tree festivals will be held at Harrowgate Hill Methodist Church, from 10am to 1pm, on Saturday (December 21). Refreshments will be available. On Sunday, the church will hold its regular morning worship at 10.30am, followed by a carol service at 6pm, led by the Reverend David Goodall. All are welcome.
COUNCIL MEETS: The next meeting of Hurworth Parish Council will take place at 7pm on Thursday, January 9, one week later than normal, to accommodate the New Year break.
