Open Study College will donate to Macmillan Cancer Support for each new student enrolment in 2015. The Birmingham-based distance learning college asked their students to vote for a good cause to support for the next year.
Centre Director Samantha Rutter said "Everyone's life is touched in some way by cancer and we look forward to supporting the excellent work of Macmillan Cancer Support. We'll be creative in our fundraising approach and want to smash the guaranteed £5000 we've agreed to donate."
In addition to a donation for every new student enrolment, the distance learning college will organise a series of activities throughout the year to spur on extra support from staff and students.
Cat Yates Fundraising Manager for Macmillan said "We are delighted that the Open Study College have decided to support us. They are very enthusiastic and ready for action. With their help we can build great awareness of Macmillan and raise vital funds for people affected by cancer. We want to thank them for their commitment and we look forward to working with them."
