Priestley students raise money to help underprivileged children in Moldova

STUDENTS from Priestley College have rallied together to raise money to help underprivileged children in Moldova.

The group of 16 students, aged from 16 to 20, have raised more than £1,200 to help buy vital necessities and aid for orphans living in the poverty-stricken country.

The production art and international baccalaureate students baked up a storm at a charity cake sale in October, raising more than £200.

But it was a night of music at Arley Hall that bumped their grand total up to £1,200.

With performances from the Bridgewater Singers and baritone Mark Edgington, the night was heralded as a success by the students.

Jordan Simpson, from Great Sankey, said: “It all went amazingly well and all our hard work has paid off.

“We raised more than £1,000 in one night so we hit our target for the evening.”

The students are now hoping to raise a further £1,700 and then plan to raise enough money to cover their expenses to travel to Moldova to help with teaching and construction in the country.
