Animal Studies students and staff took part in a Halloween fancy dress day on Friday (October 15) to raise money for charity.

Students on the Levels 1, 2 and 3 courses and the degree-level qualifications each gave a donation to mental health charity Sane to come to college dressed in a costume or as a character from a film.

“The teaching staff and the students wanted to do something fun to raise money for charity at the end of the first half-term of the year,” said Zoe Brown, Head of Animal Studies and Catering.

“Choosing a mental health charity also gave us another opportunity to open a conversation with our students and our colleagues about how we’re all feeling, and any support we might need.”

Sane aims to improve the quality of life for people affected by mental illness, offering an out-of-hours specialist helpline and peer-to-peer support, as well as campaigning and researching.

Nescot offers full-time qualifications in Animal Studies in Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3, as well as a Foundation Degree and top-up qualification.
