Girton Carol Singers raise £1900
The Pavilion at IVC supports the physical and medical needs of students with SEN and/or Disability so that they are able to participate as fully as possible in the life of the college. In 2014 the Pavilion launched an appeal to raise money to create a new sensory room at the College. The new facility will provide a therapeutic nurturing environment for children and adults who experience difficulty processing the world around them.
The ambition to convert an outside storage space into the new sensory room will cost in the region of £30,000. This term the fundraising efforts got a boost in the form of a £1900 donation from some local singers. Girton villagers have been singing carols around the village each December for over 50 years, raising money to support charity. This year IVC student Elspeth Wilson suggested the Sensory Room Appeal as a worthy cause to raise funds for. The singers took to the streets of Girton over three nights in December. In total £950 was collected, and this sum has been generously matched by the Girton Town Charity. A cheque for £1900 was presented to the College by Elspeth and Helen Wilson. Thank you to all those who have given generously to support this exciting project.
