There were eight prizes offered in the raffle.

First prize was anamazing elf cake, made by marketing officer Jamie Webb, and won by receptionist Mary Angus.

Foundation skills facilitator Julie Ettridge said: “Thank you to everyone who supported us – we hope to have raised well over £100, which is fantastic. The students enjoyed joining in the festive spirit and getting involved in the activities.”
