Supporting the local community

Community engagement and volunteering are fundamental for the College's Charities Society. Lead by Sarah Chua, the society President, they have fundraised for a number of projects including Ealing Foodbank. In addition to this, the Society is also raising funds to purchase an automated external defibrillator (AED) for the school. These can be used to help restart a heart in the event of a cardiac arrest. So far the society has raised over 30% of the cost, aiming to reach their target by the end of the academic year.

Almost 1 in 5 students have engaged with the society's projects this year, from holding a bake sale to volunteering at CityHarvest, Acton. 

On Sunday 24th March, the Society will also be volunteering at the London Landmarks Half Marathon, which aims to raise money for the baby charity Tommy's. 

The College also hosts a First Aid Society, where students have had the opportunity to learn first aid from using an EpiPen to managing diabetes. In October last year the school also participated in World Restart a Heart Day, holding sessions on CPR and AEDs throughout the day. Most of our students are now trained in CPR, compared to an average of 1 in 10 across London.
