SAMH benefit from students' hard work

NC Administration students based in the Falkirk Campus raised more than £400 and increased awareness for the Scottish Association for Mental Health (SAMH) recently as part of their course.

Catriona Kean, Elzbieta Linkowska, Rachel McCaffrey and Nadine Miller held an Easter themed event with a raffle, tombola (with 140 prizes), guess the rabbit’s birthday, and a guess the number of sweets in a jar competition. They also sold merchandise for the Scottish Association for Mental Health (SAMH).

Chloe Martin, Community Fundraiser for SAMH visited the FVC Falkirk Campus on Wednesday 31 May to accept a cheque for £405.88.

Catriona (48) from Falkirk, said: “It was great experience and really great to work with this team. The course is great for anyone looking to add a new qualification.”

Rachel (22) from Edinburgh, said: “It was a really fun to be involved in, but hard work at the same time. SAMH is a really good charity and it was good when people were speaking to us about their experiences and we were raising awareness of what SAMH is all about.”

Elzbieta (37) from Cumbernauld, added: “It was hard work, but a great result at the end of the day. We achieved a lot, even though we only had a small group. I would recommend this course to people of all ages as it is a great course. I am now looking forward to a new career path.”

Nadine (27) from Falkirk said “It was a fantastic experience representing a great cause.  The event required a lot of planning which was hard work but the end result was worth it.”

Lecturer Marlene Boyd, said: “They have all worked so well and established excellent teamwork for a successful event. I am so proud of them.”
