Teatime in Won­der­land for Lin­ford

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

LIN­FORD Christie OBE joined Brunel Univer­sity stu­dents for a spot of tea to help raise money for Chil­dren in Need.

The Olympic games gold medal­list was a guest at a Mad Hat­ters Tea Party on Fri­day, Novem­ber 13.

The party was or­gan­ised by di­rec­tor of com­mer­cial ser­vices, Tracy Stra­chan and was part of a cam­paign of ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing cake sales, litter pick­ing and a photo scav­enger hunt.

Ms Stra­chan said: “Once again our team has done Brunel proud by the mam­moth ef­fort and pas­sion they have put in to rais­ing such huge sums of money for this year’s Chil­dren In Need, a huge thanks to all who took part.”

The univer­sity has raised over £8,500 so far, with Mr Christie telling or­gan­is­ers he was ‘de­lighted’ to be able to sup­port Brunel in their fundrais­ing for such a great cause.
