Fundraising and award success with The Royal British Legion
Foundation Education have had the pleasure of working alongside the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal, and have also been recognised for a community award.
Students from the FLIP group arranged the delivery of hundreds of poppies to local schools, shops and businesses, as well as sorting all of the donations and stock.
Working as a team, they increased their employability and communication skills, as well as helping raise money for a fantastic cause. They continued this hard work with a cake stall fundraiser on Armistice Day, going over and above to help the Royal British Legion.
Following this, Eric Holmwood, Poppy Appeal Organizer for Gillingham, nominated Foundation Education and MidKent College for a special recognition community award. Lucy Mason and Lauren Hendry accepted the award at a special ceremony on 14th July, where special thanks was given to the college and everyone involved.
