Adastral Park graduates raising money for Children in Need

Archant

BT graduates at Adastral Park are aiming to raise thousands of pounds for Children in Need in a week full of activities.

Project leaders Michael Holmes and Scott Finlayson have helped organise an international food market, a language school, a coffee and cakes trolly, a Playstation tournament and sporting activities including rowing and cycling. There were also stocks for brave managers.

After speaking with last year’s organisers, Michael and Scott devised a schedule of events in the hope of topping £3,000.

“It has been an absolutely brilliant experience,” said Michael, “and we are well on our way to reaching our target.

“As well as raising money for charity the experience has been a learning curve for us and has taught us some key skills about managing people, delegation, communication and reaching targets - it has been a real buzz.

“We are both very proud of everyone who has helped organise the fundraising and thank everyone at BT for their generosity.”
