Derwen College Charity Fundraising: Covid-19 Impact
Cancelled charity fundraising events has resulted in a loss of over £50,000 in donations
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.
The coronavirus epidemic has had a serious impact on fundraising at Derwen College. The Annual Sponsored Walk, Summer Fete and many of our other planned 2020 events had to be cancelled. As a result of these event cancellations alone, we estimate the college has lost out on a total of £50,000 in donations.
Continuing our charity fundraising efforts is therefore as important as ever.
