How to support Derwen College Charity
Derwen College Charity supports the college in providing the extra experiences and opportunities that our students need to truly progress and thrive. Thanks to the donations and fundraising events in aid of Derwen College over the past 90 years, the college has been able to grow and adapt according to our students’ needs, and become a leader among SEND colleges.

Derwen College to Lapland Virtual Challenge
Yet more generous donations have boosted the amount raised from the DC to Lapland Challenge 2020 to £2,500. Many thanks to all the students, staff and family members who took part in the trek to Lapland to raise funds for Derwen College charity, this was a fantastic effort from all involved. All funds raised from the event will be used towards the refurbishment of the Agnes Hunt Village bungalows.
