A TOP north Derbyshire training agency claims its National Apprenticeship Week celebrations turned out to be a storming success after they raised £2,318.85 for hospice patients.
Learning Unlimited organised fundraising activities with its sales and business apprentices from the Learning Unlimited Academy as well as Chesterfield College’s fitness apprentices and students from the beauty and catering departments.
These activities included a fun-run, rowing and biking challenges, a beauty school drop-in and a cake sale.
A charity event with a raffle took place on February 9 during Apprenticeship Week at the Doubletree Hilton, in Sheffield, with over 40 key employers.
It was hosted by Learning Unlimited’s Jennifer Spendlove and Helena Priest and included talks by BBC1’s Apprentice runner-up Claire Young and Richard Kirkland of the National Apprenticeship Service.
